PEN: Education, Knowledge, Learning
Where: The New School for Drama, 151 Bank St., New York City
What does it mean to be an educated person? What kind of education do our children deserve, and how can we insure that our youths develop into intelligent, responsible and compassionate adult citizens of the world? Spend an afternoon with literary luminaries as they ponder how the American educational system measures up against the rest of the world, how the flaws in our system imperil our nation’s future, and what we can learn from our international counterparts.
With Tomas Espedel, Esther Klein Friedman, Juan Carlos Mestre, Gunnhild Øyehaug, and Shanley Rhodes; moderated by Eric Pliner
