Let the children play : how more play will save our schools and help children thrive

Image of item
"Play is the key to giving children skills they need to succeed - creativity, innovation, teamwork, focus, resilience, expressiveness, empathy, concentration, and execution function. Yet our policies are destroying authentic play in our schools and replacing it with standardization and stress. Not so in Finland, which is ranked as having the #1 education system in the world as well as the happiest citizens. In Let the Children Play, Pasi Sahlberg, former Director General of Finland's Ministry of Educationand Culture, and William Doyle, documentary producer, author, and Fulbright Scholar, announce a platform for bringing the Finnish style of education to the U.S. Providing a glimpse into the play-based experiments ongoing now all over the world, readers will find the book to be both a call for change and a guide for making that change happen in their own communities"--
