Why We Need Humane Education in Our Schools

An interview with Zoe Weil, co-founder and president of the Institute for Humane Education, on Treehugger.com:
All our courses [in humane education] invite people to use what we call the 3 Is: inquiry, introspection, and integrity. First we must inquire in order to learn about the important issues of our time; then we must self reflect and determine where the confluence of our knowledge and values lies; finally, we put our knowledge and values into practice which is living with integrity. This process is important for everyone - teachers, students, and anyone who wants to live their life intentionally and meaningfully.
