Abstract

Educators and members of the general public often hear that imagination is one of the major purposes of curriculum and teaching. Others counter by saying that we don’t want students to be overly imaginative without being practical and serious. What lies behind these positions? Is an imaginative citizenry wanted, or is it feared because it might push against too many of our basic convictions and assumptions?
