With the many changes happening in our schools, it's tough to choose just one significant publication or leading point-of-view to discuss. Recent publications covering topics like:
Corporate America's 'Storm of Reform'
Common Core, Race To The Top & No Child Left Behind
'Teaching to the Test'
Vouchers & Charter Schools
Overcrowding & School Closings
Record Privacy concerns
"No-bid" contracts, accountability concerns & eroding democracy
Globalization & Technology
Racial & Achievement gap
Skills gap - concern or myth?
This group is for anyone living in the Milwaukee area who enjoys reading about and discussing big ideas. From broad philosophical questions about the human mind to current social issues and scientific discoveries, the goal is to entertain our brains and broaden our perspectives. The focus is on deep scientific, philosophical and social questions, so we will stay away from self-help and business-oriented books.
