DOING DEMOCRACY:

Citizenship at School and at Home

​Dr. Meira Levinson

Tuesday, May 7; 7 - 8:15 pm PT (Livestream)

Ethical considerations, whether in K-12 or higher education, have always been a part of the American education system. Educators and parents often search for ways to address complex societal questions in and out of the classroom. Dr. Meira Levinson, after teaching in the Atlanta and Boston schools for eight years, became a professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and embarked on a journey to help raise awareness and provide tools for educators and families dealing with such ethical issues – from political polarities to philosophical disparities. She has researched, written, and spoken on a myriad of topics in civic education, creating and highlighting case studies from the classroom to aid teachers and parents as they try to shape and guide our children into thoughtful and informed citizens.

FREE for member school parents and educators.
