The World Becomes What You Teach

Zoe Weil is the co-founder and President of the Institute for Humane Education (IHE), working to create a world in which we all live humanely, sustainably, and peaceably.

I like her idea of developing in students the capacity to become "solutionaries" who can tackle problems to improve the world. I think that IGSS is moving in the direction Weil envisions for all students.

Zoe Weil shares her vision of schooling:




I will be ordering her 2009 book: Most Good, Least Harm: A Simple Principle for a Better World and Meaningful Life 
for the New Trier Library collection.  From the Amazon description:

"Weil explores direct ways to become involved with the community, make better choices as consumers, and develop positive messages to live by, showing readers that their simple decisions really can change the world. Inspiring and remarkably inclusive of the interconnected challenges we face today, Most Good, Least Harm is the next step beyond "green" -- a radical new way to empower the individual and motivate positive change."
