Why is Critical Thinking important?
Successful performance in business, health care, government service, and education requires fair-minded decision making, anticipation of consequences, and the evaluation of options and actions.

The best teachers are engaged in a life-long effort to improve their own thinking skills and mindset attributes, constantly attentive to how well they are recognizing and analyzing problems, how well they have resolved them, and where they may be unknowingly and habitually committing common reasoning errors.
