Engaging Children

Engaging Children

Global neoliberal policies have resulted in a narrowing of the purpose of creativity in schools to one of developing students as human capital for the global market. Through an interdisciplinary approach, chapter authors in this book challenge this narrow notion and  offer both theoretical and research-based support to argue the need for a much broader purpose for creativity in schools. In a truly robust democracy, our educational systems just engage children in issues that are linked to local and global issues both creatively and critically. Chapter in this edition include: creativity and policy; creativity and pedagogy; and creativity and professional development or capacity building.
