|About the Book|
To a fast growing number of secondary school students, education seems to be losing its relevance. The remedy could very well lie in Whole Education, which represents a movement, a direction, a trend, an orientation, an attitude, and a new education mind-set that deals with knowledge, skills, attitudes, and emotions in a fashion that is not unrelated to the whole life and circumstances and conditions of individual students. This book suggests ways to bring about a more relevant and meaningful education for individual students and a safer, happier, and more dynamic life in society.
