I am trying to find here and anywhere around the world examples of the employment of futuristics in K-12 education to help buttress the public policy reforms I champion on behalf of the overdue employment of educational futuristics in American schools. I have created a website (educationalfuturistics.com) to help gather in one place whatever my research locates, and I am busy writing for possible publication in 2014 my third book of advocacy in the matter. I am also completing a book about the forbidden sharing of care by Jewish prisoners in Concentration Camps. It will include a chapter about public policy in America, Israel, and (pre-Israel) Palestine that helps explain and assess the absence of attention in memorialization projects to the subject for nearly 70 recent years. (Please see www.stealthaltruism.com) Feedback VERY welcomed.
