Sternberg, Robert J.
Phi Delta Kappan, v94 n7 p44-47 Apr 2013
Schools, more and more, have emphasized the acquisition of knowledge, which seems to have come at the expense of wisdom and positive ethical values, which have not been emphasized. Nonetheless, wisdom and ethical values are what's needed to be taught in schools. But acting wise, or ethically, is a complicated process involving eight sometimes difficult steps. It is possible. And it is something, the author says, that should be taught and learned for the betterment of society.
