An analysis of education and educational reform. This book assesses what it means to face the educational challenges of the 21st century, and offers a way for education to develop whole human beings in the context of a sustainable planetary environment.

With this powerful book, Edmund O'Sullivan aims to radically alter the role of education in building a sustainable future. He addresses the reform of eduction in completely new terms. Where most contemporary "reforms" are about how to make education less expensive, O'Sullivan focuses on how to make it more relevant--personally and globally--in the next millennium.
