Yes, students should learn critical thinking at an early age. But they should learn criticial thinking. Not some pop version of what passes for critical thinking. And that's what concerns me about this article and the sources it cites. This and so many other resources are far more concerned than they should be about tone, source, motive and how it makes you feel. And there's almost nothing at all about clarity, evidence and reasoning (save the awkwardly explained ARE framework in this publication).
