A True Story of Two American Teachers in Saudi Arabia
Anderson and her husband had the opportunity to teach children of the Saudi Royal Family to think critically and help bridge the gap between the United States and Islamic states under Sharia Law.
"An educational system that emphasizes critical thinking results in a citizenry that can analyze and evaluate issues that emerge in its culture," said Anderson. "An educational system that focuses on writ memorization of selective facts seriously curtails its citizenship from independent thinking."
Anderson hopes that communication with Middle Eastern diplomats and representatives can be more effective with this frame of mind. This was also the dream that the princess had for her children.
"Dreams of a Saudi Princess" conveys the differences among cultures to stem largely from the various approaches to education rather thank the differences among religion.
