EDUCATION IS FUNDAMENTAL TO OUR LIVES as individuals, families, communities and nations. How are modern Western education systems shaping up in light of recent neuroscientific findings? Not very well, as we read in Louis Cozolino’s recent works on the social brain and education. It seems that our Western bias toward individualism and competition between individuals is not optimal for our social brains’ need to be connected, attached—part of a tribe. This month we have an excerpt from Attachment-Based Teaching: Creating a Tribal Classroom by Louis Cozolino describing the social brain in the context of education, throwing a timely spotlight on some of the less than ideal ways the West has shaped the school setting.
