Product Description

. . . a clarion call for and guide to an historic transformation . . . that will inform and delight teachers, parents, and all those active in building a better life for Tomorrow’s Children.
~ Professor George Gerbner, Temple University

Through Partnership Education we can break the cycle of global violence that imperils the world. This new video will help us move toward a more equitable, sustainable and hopeful future. For everyone who cares about young people: from politicians and school officials to teachers, parents-and students themselves.

This richly illustrated video features an in-depth interview with Riane Eisler and includes partnership educator Sarah Pirtle and teachers and students from Nova High, a 30 year-old Seattle alternative public high school that has piloted partnership education.

Riane Eisler is an acclaimed author, educator, and lecturer. Her international bestseller, The Chalice and The Blade: Our History, Our Future, was hailed by anthropologist Ashley Montagu as “the most important book since Darwin’s Origin of Species” and by novelist Isabel Allende as “one of those magnificent key books that can transform us.” Dr. Eisler is president of the Center for Partnership Studies, taught at UCLA and Immaculate Heart College, and keynotes conferences worldwide.
