What People are Saying

"[Perspectives] explains things in an easy-to-understand way, while still offering mind boggling insight."

Student

Even as a strong proponent of public schools, I recognize that they often fail at teaching critical thinking skills in a way that students can apply outside of specific subject areas. The [Perspectives] platform fills in this gap quite well. The [Perspectives] platform, used properly, should be a high-school graduation requirement.

I have found [Perspectives] to be an essential part of my classroom - particularly when introducing students to the conventions of academic research.
