Soul of Education argues that in the past several decades, humanity itself has been watered down: community turned into consumerism, politics into manipulation, and destiny into DNA, making it increasingly difficult to find nourishment for the hungers of the heart. This book offers a compelling new vision that seeks to reclaim our humanity in the 21st century. Leaving behind the "thin soup" of teaching to the tests and returning to a rich broth of diversity where development of human thoughts and potential take precedence over cut-throat Machiavellian programs for raising test scores - designs that only result in degredation of student and teacher spirits. A revolutionary book in an era increasingly controlled by corporate publishers and testing companies who profit from the fears and misinformation surrounding "teach to the tests" mania. A must read for teachers, administrators, and parents who want their children to grow up as thinkers rather than artifacts of distant impersonal scoring machines. Time for a change. #STO-9020.">
