A group of people who understand that thinking lies at the root of all new discovery.
A United Nation of ThinkNationsOur Nation's schools are incubators for future adults, parents, employees, bosses, inventors, artists, thought leaders, CEOs, senators, Presidents, and citizens. Yet, with our current system, there is no guarantee that students will leave school with the ability to think independently, critically, creatively and prosocially -even those who complete high school, a four year college, or graduate school lack these skills.
