9-28-10: Dr. Freeman Hrabowski

The Baltimore Curriculum Project’s Leading Minds series is hosting a discussion at Loyola University Maryland on Thursday. The topic? “What Do We Want—And Need—Our Children to Learn: The Purpose of Public Education.”

That’s a doozy of a question, and they’ve enlisted some strong thinkers to tackle it. One of the panelists is Dr. Freeman Hrabowski. He’s been president of the University of Maryland Baltimore County for 18 years. Time Magazine named him one of the country’s top ten college presidents, and his work with minority students earned him an honorary Harvard degree.

Today he shares his thoughts with Sheilah about public education–particularly, the role of parents. The Leading Minds event starts at 4 p.m. on Thursday. Tickets are available online.

Dr. Hrabowski talked to Sheilah for about 45 minutes–he had a lot of intriguing takes on a lot of interesting subjects. Hear the whole interview:

    Thank you so much for standing up and being honest about what plagues our children’s progress in education today! As both a teacher and parent, I understand the issues from both sides and you are hitting the mark. Have you ever considered becoming a public school superintendent? Your experience and understanding would be greatly valued in our current public education system!
