If we want kids to be thinkers, we have to encourage (and help) them think – and that means spending most of their time on questions that don’t lend themselves to single word answers that are either right or wrong.

The foundation asserts that the answers are critical to developing educational and other social institutions that can meet the needs of this and future generations.
