Held on July 11, 2015.
Author G.K. Chesterton observed, “Education is the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another.” How have various worldviews influenced the history of modern education? Have these philosophies influenced the way teachers lead their classrooms and administrators shape school culture today? What can historic Christian faith contribute to the conversation about character development and education reform in Colorado?
This forum explored worldviews and the classroom–specifically, how the Christian faith can guide the work of educators across the metro area. The evening featured Dr. Mary Poplin of Claremont Graduate University. Dr. Claremont began her career as a public school teacher and now is a writer university researcher. Her research specializes in contemporary intellectual trends in various academic disciples–the sciences, humanities, social sciences– as well as highly effective teaching in low-performing urban schools.
