These Schools Belong to You and Me

Why We Can't Afford to Abandon Our Public Schools
Campus Center, Weis Cinema  6:30 pm
The BardMAT welcomes author and educational activist Deborah Meier, who will discuss her new book These Schools Belong to You and Me: Why We Can't Afford to Abandon Our Public Schools.

In These Schools Belong to You and Me, MacArthur award–winning educator, reformer, and author Deborah Meier draws on her fifty-plus years of experience to argue that the purpose of universal education is to provide young people with an “apprenticeship for citizenship in a democracy.” Through an intergenerational exchange with her former colleague and fellow educator Emily Gasoi, the coauthors analyze the last several decades of education reform, challenging narrow profit-driven conceptions of school success. Reflecting on the trajectory of education and social policies that are leading our country further from rule “of, for, and by the people,” the authors apply their extensive knowledge and years of research to address the question of how public education must change in order to counter the erosion of democratic spirit and practice in schools and in the nation as a whole.
