Heroes and Villains

Presented in no particular order… my philosophy, as it regards to education, has been influenced by some ideas espoused by these individuals (I don’t necessarily regard them as heroes per se, but I thought the title Heroes and Villains was catchy… more, especially on Villains, as my ideas mature.).

This is also not to say that I agree with everything these people say or stand for, just that at least one aspect of their thinking has materially influenced my own.

Who are some of the people you regard has Heroes or Villains? Let me know in the Comments.
