Dr. William Egginton - How Education Went from the Great Equalizer to the Great Divider, and What We Can Do to Fix It

When: Tue., Feb. 5, 4-5 p.m.

Professor William Egginton argues that that our education system has come to embody the very social and economic inequality it should be challenging; tt is helping to amplify political and social divisions in our country, and making it harder for democracy to function. He proposes a series of recommendations for how to refocus our educational institutions on the goal of supporting a sense of national community and civic engagement. Professor Egginton is the Dexter Professor in the Humanities and director of the Alexander Grass Humanities Institute at Johns Hopkins University.
