In her book, Tomorrow’s Children: A Blueprint for Partnership Education in the 21st Century, Riane Eisler describes a Partnership education system as one that nurtures flexibility, creativity and the ability to think critically - skills needed to meet the challenges of our rapidly changing, technologically oriented, world. Partnership education consists of structure (the organization of decision-making and teaching roles), process (mutually respectful relationships that invite the child to engage in learning in their wholeness), and content (experiences and narratives that enable young people to deeply understand their place in culture, history and the natural world). Domination-based practices that preclude feelings of safety for students and that keep students striving to fit within predefined ways of learning are absent.
In this episode, Cherri Jacobs Pruitt interviews Tim Seldin about how Montessori Education is an international model of a thriving Partnership education system. This interview will leave you inspired and with a blueprint for embracing Partnership education as a key lever in creating a world that values caring, nature, and shared prosperity.
