What Really Matters?
Ten Critical Issues in Contemporary Education
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"What Really Matters? is a must-read if you care deeply about how young people will fare in the twenty-first century. Bernard Bull--long a favorite thinker for those who care about transformational learning--offers ten themes that go far beyond the tired arguments that divide many educators. From discovering hidden talents to forging character to finding meaning, Bull offers observations and questions that will keep many of us busy for the next decade, if not longer."
--Jeff Sandefer, Middle School Guide and Co-Founder, Acton Academy
"In What Really Matters? Bernard Bull brings a deeply moral sensibility to an analysis of issues that all too often are treated as mere technical matters of connecting effective means to unexamined ends. Bull illuminates the ways in which education is inescapably laden with human values and interests, and guides us toward reflectively engaging with fundamental questions of meaning as we make choices in education policy and practice."
--Michael Olneck, Professor Emeritus of Educational Policy Studies and Sociology, University of Wisconsin-Madison
