Global Brains: Knowledge and Competencies for the 21st Century
Owing to the recent forces of globalization, the world is a very different place than it was just two decades ago.

If we are to succeed in this new, fast-paced, diverse, and complex global economy, we will need to equip ourselves with new skills and new understandings. We need to be more competent than ever before. But more than that, we need to develop a new mindset for this changing world, which Ferraro calls “global brains.” More ...

Kingdom of Children: Culture and Controversy in the Homeschooling Movement
Beyond a vague notion of children reading around the kitchen table, we don't know what home schooling looks like from the inside. Mitchell Stevens, assistant professor of sociology, goes behind the scenes of the homeschool movement and into the homes and meetings of home schoolers. What he finds are two very different kinds of home education--one rooted in the liberal alternative school movement of the 1960s and 1970s and one stemming from the Christian day school movement of the same era. Stevens explains how this dual history shapes the meaning and practice of home schooling today. More ...
