This book is an exquisite and compelling statement of what education could and should be. Dr. Annemarie Roeper explains a system of education that emphasizes self-actualization and interdependence as the true goals of our educatonal endeavors. Using dozens of examples from her 40+ years as an educator, Dr. Roeper weaves together a mosaic of what education must become if children are to see themselves as integral members of a global community. The picture she creates, the education she envisions, is a blueprint for change. Her vision is clear, her ideas straightforward: educating children for life begins and ends with respecting the child.
