An appeal for the transformation of educational thinking
Köhler’s unceasingly heart-filled account appears at a time when, on the one hand, we face rising numbers of children whose classroom behavior classifies them as “educationally difficult,” and on the other hand seem to find ourselves painted into a corner with fewer and fewer means to address this crisis. Köhler eloquent protest is founded in his long and deep experience in working with special needs children, and the success of his approach is beyond dismissal. He challenges these accepted patterns of thought and outlines a spiritually deepened concept of education and upbringing that is truly refreshing. Every parent and teacher will benefit from this book. In fact, I’d go so far as to say every adult human being will benefit from learning to see others through eyes taught to look as Köhler looks. Difficult Children has our highest recommendation!
