Battling for the Soul of Education: Moving beyond School Reform to Educational Transformation
Abbott, John
NAMTA Journal, v40 n3 p93-105 Sum 2015
John Abbott is seeking a revolution in education that will put learning back into the hands of the learner. He writes of the learner needing to be free-ranging and weaned from instruction. He is the director of a new wave of thinkers who are members of The 21st Century Learning Initiative, which places emphasis on the skills of critical thinking, problem solving, innovation, independence, collaboration, teamwork, leadership, multicultural understanding, communication, IT skills, and career and learning independence. This movement gives insight into Montessori adolescent education as it also is clearly reacting to the content-based learning that Montessori does not view as its focus or priority.
