Stanley Ivie

Professor Emeritus, TWU
Professor Ivie is a specialist in the history of educational ideas. He has written extensively on the power of metaphors to shape educational thought, which includes critical and creative thinking. The theory and practice of education shares more in common with the creative arts than it does with the sciences. It is time to end the false metaphor that testing can improve the quality of education.
