From the social thinker, Riane Eisler, a model for childhood education and a healthier, more humane world. When Riane Eisler published her book The Chalice and the Blade in 1987, she introduced the idea of partnership, a model for society that stresses environmental sustainability, nonviolence, multiculturalism, and gender-fairness. Now, in Tomorrow's Children, Eisler applies the partnership model to modern education, providing parents and teachers with specific ways to apply her ideas to the teaching of school-age children. Eisler explains how for too long a dominator model, which emphasizes control, authoritarianism, violence, and gender discrimination, has characterized our educational system. Tomorrow's Children recommends sweeping changes in both the content and process of teaching and maintains that ideas of struggle, conquest, and destruction can successfully be supplanted by those of cooperation, mutual aid, and respect for creation.
