Our 25th anniversary celebration

As the 25th anniversary celebration of The Critical Thinking Consortium comes to a close, I thank you for joining us in celebrating everyone involved in TC²: the founders who had a vision; our past and present leadership teams; the facilitators who work every day to inspire educators; those of you who contribute to our resources and who are constantly grappling with how to best support teachers and students; the educators who bring the TC² dream to life in the classroom; and the learners who grow into adults who question. Thank you for being a part of the TC² story. Here’s to the next 25 years and beyond!

-Usha James, Executive Director
