• A New Vision for Science Education 


    "The notion that there is a single scientific method of observation, hypothesis, deduction, and conclusion—a myth perpetuated to this day by many textbooks—is fundamentally wrong. Scientists do use deductive reasoning, but they also search for patterns, classify different objects, make generalizations from repeated observations, and engage in the process of making inferences as to what might be the best explanation. Thus, the picture of scientific reasoning is richer, more complex, and more diverse than a linear and unitary scientific method suggests."

    Educational Quotes

    Seek knowledge above all things, and open your heart to your history. People without an appreciation of the value of historical experiences will always create chaos. (Molefi Kete Asante)

    If educators don't know the solution within them, then there's no need for a book, workshop, or discussion to explore strategies, principles, best practices, and high expectations. Students are fortunate to learn in a school environment that values, respects, and appreciates their culture. (Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu)

    Self-healing power should be understood in terms of physical and mental health but as a concept that includes all aspects of life: economy, education, development, industry, culture, and politics. One could, then, after physical and mental healing power, talk of economics, educational, developmental, industrial, cultural, or political healing power. This last, I refer to as institutional healing power. (Kimbwandendeb - Kia Bunseki Fu-Kiau)
