This is the story of
Fairminded Fran and her experience in learning about community cats (also known as feral cats). On her journey Fran hopes to convince Selfish Sam to help with the cats. But Sam cares only for himself. She also asks Naïve Nancy to get involved. But Nancy doesn’t want to make waves, so she always goes along with the crowd. Join Fairminded Fran as she learns about cats that live outdoors and that can’t usually be tamed. Learn important facts about community cats. Think about how their numbers affect the earth. Think about how we can work together to humanely stop the spread of community cats and reduce suffering. Think along with Fairminded Fran.

The Foundation for Critical Thinking seeks to promote essential change in education
and society  through the cultivation of fair-minded critical thinking, thinking predisposed toward intellectual empathy, humility, intellectual perseverance, integrity, and responsibility. A rich intellectual environment is possible only with critical thinking at the foundation of education. Why? Because only when students learn to think through the content they are learning in a deep and substantive way can they apply what they are learning in their lives. Moreover, in a world of accelerating change, intensifying complexity, and increasing
interdependence, critical thinking is now a requirement for economic and social survival. Contact us to learn about our publications, videos, workshops,conferences, and professional development programs.
