Is "Learning without Limits" a Framework of Values?
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v57 n3 p325-332 2015
In this article the author connects his own work with Brian Simon's writing on IQ (intelligence quotient) testing and selection and with the Learning without Limits project. He discusses the significance he gives to a values framework in the development of education and asks whether "Learning without Limits," in part, stands for a similar framework. He sees the work of the Learning without Limits team as a bright light. It is powered by renewable energy, in a murky educational landscape itself powered too often by the same dubious energy sources that may destroy this planet unless we stop using them. This work matters.
