question mark out of puzzle piecesCritical thinking isn’t just a buzzword. It’s a vital skill that’s in demand by employers and central to a meaningful education. Students need to be able to find and assess accurate, credible information; to dive deeply into complex issues and see beyond the superficial solutions and either/or framing our media and culture favor; to evaluate all relevant factors and develop positive solutions that do the most good and least harm for all.
