Founders Circle Member

Harvard University

It's about open and informed and civil expression of ideas - sometimes with people who disagree with you. Where else is that happening in my generation?"
Appalchian State University
"Students are rarely encouraged to think carefully about issues from outside of a politically correct viewpoint. I appreciate how Thinker Education is doing a great job of challenging that system."

The effects of training students to think well is that they will be able to engage the world as an individual thinker, rather than as a parrot."
