Join Dr. James Avington Miller, Jr. as he reflects on the past year and how the events of 2017 fit into the history of the War on Public Education. Are we living a false reality believing that things are getting better for our students, our teachers, our parents, and our communities? Or do we see what is really happening?

This Sunday Dr. Miller examines the many changing purposes of Public Education and the battle over who and what defines this purpose. What kind of education would be appropriate to speak to the needs of the modern student in society? What are we educating our students for? Why do you, as parents, send your children to school? Why do you, as teachers, teach? These questions are important tools in understanding the many changing purposes of education. As there is no single right answer, it is up to all of us to engage our communities around these critical questions.
