The need for new thinking in the world, both official leadership and for all participating members of society has been a glaring reality in recent times. The idea of teaching students how to use the full potential of their thinking apparatus is not absurd_simply logical and timely. Opportunities for creative expression are central to the development of a sense of personal identity and significance when creative thinking and expression are valued by the powers that be. In this book, the author stresses the importance of radical change in educational practices as a necessity.
