with eyes open wide

Icon Person: Maxine Greene, Education Theorist

Maxine Greene was an education philosopher who taught for nearly 50 years at the Teachers College at Columbia University in New York City. She promoted multiculturalism, power of the imagination, creative thinking, and aesthetic education (arts).

Mrs. Greene passed away at the age of 96 on May 29th. I encourage you to read her beautiful obituary by the New York Times through the link below.

Thank you for your powerful legacy, Mrs. Greene!
