The Six Virtues of the Educated Person discusses two ways of trying to improve American education -- how we do it now, and how we ought to do it. This book offers an alternative schooling model -- one that builds on the positive aspects of our current model and provides hope for public school improvement. It will not be easy, but we can move from our current model to the alternative and this book provides a clear outline of how this can be done by challenging the most fundamental aspects of American public schools and educating audiences in the 6 virtues of understanding, imagination, strength, courage, humility and generosity.
Urges readers to take a step back from the question of purpose to ask an even bigger question: what does it mean to be an educated person?--H.M. Miller "CHOICE, June 2010 "
