When we think of Tolstoy, we think of a great Russian novelist, but he was so much more than that in his own time. Many social reform causes captured his attention, and  he made timeless contributions to the fields of social justice and education that have application to the problems faced by underprivileged students everywhere. Tolstoy’s considerable influence extends both as far as modern progressive movements in education, and as deep as the nonviolent resistance movements of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Join Dr. Patricia Flaherty as she discusses the contributions of Tolstoy to the problems of education and social justice in contemporary society.
