Curriculum for Critical Thinking Skills

BECAUSE a major responsibility of an educational system is to encourage students to study issues with scrutiny and to judge the veracity of those issues, and

BECAUSE scrutiny requires access to all viewpoints of an issue, and

BECAUSE scrutiny also requires facts to be identified, analyzed and evaluated, and

BECAUSE scrutiny requires identifying emotional arguments and recognizing them as invalid tools for critical thinking,

THEREFORE school curriculums are required to include the teaching of critical-thinking skills in all basic curriculum areas.
