Fortunately, we are in a position to do so without having to overturn the current higher education system or break the bank, writes Jonathan Haber. For close to 50 years, educators and politicians from classrooms to the Oval Office have stressed the importance of graduating students who are skilled critical thinkers. Similarly, our democracy is today imperiled not by lack of access to data and opinions about the most important issues of the day, but rather by our inability to sort the true from the fake or hopelessly biased. We have certainly made progress in critical-thinking education over the last five decades. Courses dedicated to the subject can be found in the catalogs of many colleges and universities, while the latest generation of K academic standards emphasize not just content but also the skills necessary to think critically about content taught in English, math, science and social studies classes. Despite this progress, 75 percent of employers claim the students they hire after 12, 16 or more years of formal education lack the ability to think critically and solve problems -- despite the fact that nearly all educators claim to prioritize helping students develop those very skills.

I n the years since Sunil Khilnani's Idea of India was first published, the book and its argument have become central to the very contestations it sought to describe -- over the nature of the Indian republic, of the history that it acknowledges and owns, and what binds Indians together. So influential has it been that, on the Internet, "IoI" is used often at invective at those who are seen as excessively sympathetic to the old Nehruvian notion of an inclusive, pluralistic, multi-layered India. Any reiteration, restatement, revisiting or renewal of the argument could easily be seen as a disappointment.
Book: Tuesdays With Morrie. Topics: Critical. Yes, my opinion about Mitch did change as the book went on. As a young man in college, Mitch found a friend away from home. This friend happened to be Morrie, his professor.
