ABOUT THIS VIDEO

Arab liberals believe the region’s schools need to teach critical thinking to prepare children for a generation of progress.  But to bring critical thinking to Arab schools won’t be easy: bureaucracy slows change, and most teachers were not taught critical thinking themselves. Arab liberals see new media as a potential means to jumpstart the process. Here’s a moment from an online learning course by Egypt’s Tahrir Academy.
