MEDIA REVIEWS
"Ethics for the Young Mind is a wonderful examination of how to think about ethics, not just for young people but for adults as well. The approach on teaching ethics will be extremely provocative and compelling for adolescents who have often been denied access to education that respectfully invites their input while helping them think."
-Dr. Nancy Duggan, Forensic Psychologist

"This immensely wise book represents a synthesis of theory, practice, and the authors' many years of personal experience in the classroom and beyond. Drawn from many sources, and rich in examples, the authors have provided a tested and trustworthy guide for parents and teachers and all of us for whom ethical decisions are integral to daily life. I think all members of Congress should read it and take it to heart!"
-Frank T. Griswold, Former Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church

"Ethics for the Young Mind includes a rich collection of practical guides that are related to some of the most advanced ethical theories of the day-with a focus on enhancing ethical understandings and practice with young people."
-Jack Whitehead, University of Cumbria

"Filled with examples from fables, fairy tales, fiction, law texts, and history-both ancient and modern-the book examines the ambiguity of right and just and fair along with practical ideas and strategies for planning curriculum. Best of all, the authors encourage the reader to explore and create opportunities that will allow young people to be actively involved in this important process. The book is brilliant."
-Francine Fox, Teacher and Cofounder of Project Learn School

"Like Dewey, the Allenders see the classroom as a microcosm of the world. Their curriculum teaches children to be agents of change."
-Helen Freidus, Bank Street College of Education
