The Future of Education

Hour 2:           Do we share an ethical responsibility to ensure that high quality education is available to all? We’ll explore the roles we can all play this hour with Regina Nippert, director of the Center on Communities and Education at SMU’s Simmons School of Education & Human Development, Professor Rita Kirk, director of SMU’s Maguire Center for Ethics and Public Responsibility, and Todd Williams, an education philanthropist and executive director of Commit! They all participated in the first of a series of “From Your Block to the Boardroom” conversations at SMU last week.

    I’m so excited you are doing this show!  As a recent graduate of Leadership DISD, I am excited about the oppotunities that are opening up for our children.  As more and more Dallasites become aware of just what is going on (and can be offered) in our schools, I hope that more of us will dive in and give a hand.

    Many, many thanks to your guests!

    Even if I did not consider education an ethical responsibility, I would still have to support free education for all. Neither our system of government nor our economic system can prosper without an educated populace.
