Teach Your Children Well brings together all kinds of ideas from various disciplines and experiences, some of which contradict one another. What they all have in common, nonetheless, is the desire to teach well and to explore the circumstances under which creativity, understanding, and knowledge can flourish. Each essay, in its own particular and peculiar way, contains or chronicles an expression of how this might be done. None of the writers are at present members of a formal Education program at a university, rather, they are teachers and mentors who bring to the discipline of education their own particular insights.
