AUTHOR TALK: In the Small Places with Fred Mednick

Date: 
Wednesday, April 17, 2024 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

As the largest professionally trained group in the world, teachers know who is sick, missing, orphaned by disasters, and at risk for human trafficking. They are the glue that holds society together, and a development army in everyone's backyard. Teachers are not the problem. They are the solution. Their voices must be heard.

Eleanor Roosevelt once asked, "Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home - so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.”

Join Fred Mednick, founder of Teachers without Borders as he discusses teacher agency in those small places - writ large in his new book In the Small Places: Stories of Teacher Changemakers and the Power of Human Agency
