At the dawn of the twenty-first century, we are living in a global era, yet schooling systems remain generally reactive and slow to adapt to shifting economic, technological, demographic, and cultural terrains. There is a growing urgency to create, evaluate, and expand new models of education that are better synchronized with the realities of today’s globally linked economies and societies.

Educating the Whole Child for the Whole World examines one such model: the ethos and practices of the Ross Schools and their incubation, promotion, and launching of new ideas and practices into public education. Over the last two decades Ross has come to articulate a systematic approach to education consciously tailored for a new era of global interdependence.

In this volume, world-renowned scholars from a variety of disciplines, as well as veteran teachers, administrators, and students, come together to examine some of the best practices in K-12 education in the context of an increasingly interconnected world. Together they explore how the Ross model of education, which cultivates in students a global perspective, aligns with broader trends in the arts, humanities, and sciences in the new millennium.

Contributors: Nick Appelbaum, Ralph Abraham, Antonio M. Battro, Sally Booth, Michele Clays, Elizabeth M. Daley, Antonio Damasio, Hanna Damasio, Kurt W. Fischer, Howard Gardner, Vartan Gregorian, Christina Hinton, Hideaki Koizumi, Debra McCall, Carolyn Sattin-Bajaj, John Sexton, Carola Suárez-Orozco, Marcelo M. Suárez-Orozco, William Irwin Thompson, and Sherry Turkle.

About the Author:

Marcelo M. Suárez-Orozco is Dean and Distinguished Professor of Education at UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies.

Review:

“I’ve always believed that education is freedom. It opens the door to greater possibilities. In my life’s work in education, I’ve turned to Courtney Ross to provide insight and inspiration. The Ross School is an exemplary model of what is attainable for global education in the 21st Century.”

-Oprah Winfrey



“Courtney Ross and I are co-workers in the vineyard of the education of the young. I was inspired when I visited the Ross School years ago. In my own work in founding the now 20-years-old Illinois Math and Science Academy (IMSA), I appreciated the unique qualities of Ross. The Ross School model is clearly a profound example of what the nation and the world needs so desperately.”
-Leon M. Lederman,Nobel Laureate in Physics



“For more than two decades, everything that carries Courtney Ross’ imprint has symbolized international, out-of-the-box originality, especially through her efforts in education. One extraordinary example of this was the 2001 Sonic Convergence: A Glimpse Into the Global Classroom project. I was involved, both in person and through the use of cutting edge media, mentoring students and faculty participating in the USA, China, and Sweden; then we came together and made beautiful music as I conducted their final, global composition.”
-Quincy Jones



“Courtney Ross has devoted her life to holistic education for young people. Educating the Whole Child for the Whole World tells the marvelous story of how one day they will be our future leaders and help create a peaceful, just, sustainable and healthy society.”
-Deepak Chopra



“When I visited the Long Island Ross School I was struck by the way Courtney Ross and her team successfully brought together the elements of an effective school: reflective teachers, innovative curriculum, and student-centered instruction. It is no wonder that the school has been a magnet for some of the most influential education thinkers of our time. In Educating the Whole Child for the Whole World, Suarez-Orozco and Sattin-Bajaj have created a multi-faceted meditation on the ever-evolving Ross model of education, with relevant lessons for educators everywhere.”

-Kathleen McCartney,Dean, Harvard Graduate School of Education
