This article focuses on education. For much of this year, when education has hit the front pages, it's been partnered with either the rubbery prefix values, or stretched taut between those two bitter opponents, the private and public systems. Education is a key citadel in any democracy, as one of the finalists, professor Alan Reid, stresses. Education as a field is notorious for not making connections, for all its talk of lateral this, and cross that. One had to think outside the boxes that educators like so much as we evaluated the contributions of high-browed theorists, on-the-ground teachers, curriculum gurus, business-minded principals and reforming bureaucrats. They're smart in their ability to see past conventional formats and imagine different ways of achieving the desired end of education over the centuries, lighting the flame in kids' minds, and keeping the oxygen flowing around it, so that the flame catches in their lives.
