Culver-Stockton Education students attended a lecture by Jonathan Kozol, author of Letters to a First Year Teacher on Tuesday, October 23, in Iowa City, Iowa. Kozol emphasizes on what it means to be a teacher today. He conveys the thrill and delight of preparing a new generation on the path of being an educator.
“With Letters to a Young Teacher, Kozol reminds us that teaching remains a wonderful and essential calling,” said Marian Wright Edelman, president, Children’s Defense Fund.
“It was a unique opportunity to hear one of the foremost "critical" educators on today's scene,” said Terry Sherer, associate professor of education and division chair of education and applied arts.
Students attending the lecture were Lawanda Losey, Alexandria, Mo., and Rachel Harvey, Labelle, Mo.
Kozol is sponsored by the Iowa City Public Schools and Prairie Lights Bookstore.
