Treating all of Nature as a Thou

Thumbnail image for Treating all of Nature as a Thou by Adam J Pearson

Martin Buber said that the most fulfilling relationships are not I-It relationships, in which we relate to the other as an object, but I-Thou relationships, in which we relate to the whole being of the other, holistically.

Who will fight for them?

Thumbnail image for Who will fight for them? by Anthony P Johnson

Too many prisons, but not enough good schools. Too many weapons, but not enough educational tools. Not enough effective teachers, but way too many fools. Too many students piled in one classroom–35 up to 45–and possibly more. Over 60% of them are academically incapable of passing — and more than 50% will drop out of […]
