Happy Independence Day! The Fourth of July has come and gone. Our nation has celebrated the birth of the United States with much fanfare. While everyone BBQed and set off fireworks I (being the nerd that I am) began thinking about the founding fathers. As I watched the fireworks many questions arose:
"What did Thomas Jefferson think about education?"
"How did the principals outlined in the Declaration of Independence inform the way we think about education?"
"When did education become a right, not a privilege?"
In this episode we will explore these questions through situating educational policy within American History.
Social scientist, history buffs, educational theorist, this episode is for you. Call in to join the conversation!
