Critical Thinking

"The principle goal of education in the schools should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done; men and women who are creative, inventive and discoverers, who can be critical and verify, and not accept, everything they are offered."
-Jean PiagetEducation for Democracy, Proceedings from the Cambridge School Conference on Progressive Education, eds. Kathe Jervis and Arthur Tobier (1988)
