Education, America, & Lois Mason

That is the title of the September 19, 2007 issue of the international periodical "The Right of Aesthetic Realism to Be Known."

It is about the eminently successful teaching method which some of my postings here describe. This method -- the Aesthetic Realism teaching method -- has been tested over more than twenty-five years at all levels from K through college & adult education; in every subject from mathematics to printmaking, from reading and history to physical education, science, technology, and more. Ladies and Gentlemen, IT WORKS! It has children remember facts, pass tests, and moreover it has them kinder to each other, more considerate of people close to to them as well as those of another ethnic group and whose language and religion is different.

This issue of "The Right of Aesthetic Realism to Be Known" includes an important article by Lois Mason.

The Aesthetic Realism Foundation website tells this about my teacher, colleague, and friend:

"Tragically, Lois Mason died this summer. She was one of America's most respected and beloved educators, and this issue of TRO is both an honoring of her and a presentation of that vibrant, practical, kind approach to education which she loved and which teachers on all levels are learning now...."
