This chapter first appeared as an article in FNO in 1994 and then again in the September, 1998 issue of Phi Delta Kappan. The theme of this chapter is the value of raising young people to think, explore and make meaning for themselves. It has been updated for 2012-13, but little change was necessary. It is Chapter 3 of The Next Best Thing.

In the iBook version of this article, each chapter starts with a video like the one you can watch on Youtube. The video is embedded in the articles. If you own an iPad, you can download the first five chapters as a free preview of the book. Click on the image to the left to see the video that accompanies this chapter.
