Should the American education system be revamped? What’s the purpose of charter schools? Generation Citizen at Pace University hosts a discussion on February 26.
Should K-12 Education Be Privatized?
Wednesday, February 26
6:30 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
W619, NYC Campus
An in-depth look into the American education system (K-12). The conversation analyzes charter schools and their purpose. A panel discussion moderated by a Pace student and featuring three Pace professors: Assistant Professor of Political Science Matthew Bolton, PhD, Associate Professor of Management Barry Gold, PhD, and School of Education Professor Peter McDermott, PhD. The event is open to all Pace University students and refreshments will be served.
Generation Citizen at Pace empowers young people to engage and become active citizens. With the help of Democracy Coaches (DC), GC works with teachers to teach a course in civics action to high school and middle school students. Students are asked to identify a community issue that they feel passionate about and develop an action plan to address the issue. Generation Citizen’s goal is for every student to experience a “moment of empowerment” where they see firsthand the strength of their voice and commitment and recognize their responsibility to be effective and engaged citizens.
Generation Citizen has a semester packed with events including a screening of Ten9Eight, which chronicles the inspirational stories of several teens from low-income communities as they compete in an annual business plan competition, on March 12, Pop Culture and News Game Show on April 22, and a Women’s Contribution to Education in America Exhibition on April 30.
