JREF in the Classroom is the centerpiece of the foundation’s work to bring its educational mission and message of skepticism and critical thinking to K-12 teachers and their students. Participating teachers promote critical thinking, science appreciation, information literacy, and raise awareness about the need to critically examine unproven claims. As the program succeeds, their students gain an intellectual toolset needed to succeed in school and better navigate a life full of difficult decisions, confusing information, and conflicting claims. Best of all, the JREF hopes the kids find the material irresistible as it often examines fascinating topics from the paranormal and extraordinary claims from the fringes of science while remaining relevant to other classroom content and addressing expected educational standards.
CEO of Polaris Financial Planning, Phil Ferguson stated, “Polaris Financial Planning is proud to be a supporter on the vanguard of the JREF’s educational programs. Becoming the first supporter in the JREF in the Classroom program is the perfect fit for our company and its goal to support critical thinking and science education. Ultimately I’m hopeful that others will follow our lead and support the JREF’s work by becoming educational partners themselves.”
