When asked how they feel about their schooling, children from many walks of life seem to have a single one-word answer: "boring!" Yet children are not naturally bored by the world. This simple act alone should surely prompt us to ask why this should be so. The answer, it is suggested, lies in the outdated mental model of the world to which many adults still hold but which is being rapidly superseded by a holistic world view. This book delineates seven key criteria of what characterises a modern holistic approach to education and explores methods by which they might be met.
