A Conversation with Educational Pioneer Phil Moore, Author of “The Future of Children”
“We need to evolve from children of God to adults of good.” — Swami Beyondananda
There was a joke years ago about how we will know when the world is right-side-up: Schools and children will get all the resources they require to thrive, and the Air Force will have to hold a bake sale every time they want to build a new bomber.
This joke has gotten less and less funny over the years, particularly now when the word “school” is too often paired with the word “shooting”. As the toll seems to be mounting from our societal “priorities” that put nurturance last, here comes a book that not only asserts that children will have a future, but tells us a “love-based education” is the key to that future.
Meet Phil Moore, who, as director of Upland Hills School for over 40 years, helped provide that love-based education, in an environment where each child is known, and both freedom and structure are used appropriately.
