In the work thinkLaw is leading across 21 states to create a world where critical thinking is no longer a luxury good, I realized I need to be clearer about why we are so convinced that we can close The Critical Thinking Gap. This gap is far from insurmountable because this is a gap in expectations, not in potential. The truth is that students from low income backgrounds, students who are linguistically diverse, and students from minority populations are often endowed with enormous critical thinking potential. Some call this “street smart,” but I reject that categorization. “Street smart” is just smart. The failure to translate the practical set of problem-solving strategies we associate with being “street smart” to whatever academically amounts to “book smart” is an adult issue, not a child one.
