By Riane Eisler
Tomorrow’s Children: A Blueprint for Partnership Education in the 21st Century by Riane Eisler goes beyond conventional debates about educational reform to what today's and tomorrow's children need to survive and flourish.
Tomorrow’s Children recommends sweeping changes in both the content and process of teaching and maintains that ideas of struggle, conquest, and destruction can successfully be supplanted by those of cooperation, mutual aid, and respect for creation. The result is a revolutionary and inspiring picture of how education–and by extension, society–might look in the twenty-first century.
Partnership education will be part of everyone’s consciousness, as the whole community will recognize that children are our most precious resource–to be nurtured, cultivated, and encouraged to flower in the unique ways each of us can. Partnership schools will be resources of and for the whole community, linked to other schools, communities, and nations through electronic communications fostering a world community. In partnership schools, tomorrow’s children will form visions of what can be and acquire the understandings and skills to make these visions come true. (Adapted from the Epilogue to Tomorrow’s Children).
