How do government run schools compare to private schools? What distinguishes the LePort Schools from any other private or government school? What teaching methods, curricula, teaching training are required to achieve excellent results in educating young minds? These are some of the questions that Andrew Bernstein and I will discuss with Dr. LePort on "Objectively Speaking" on Tuesday, October 8th at 8:00 pm ET.
As, Andrew Bernstein says - "This will be an informative and ispiring discussion regarding the single most important topic in the world: educating the mind."
