Weather Underground in the Ivory Tower:
Transforming Education from Kindergarten to College
A lecture by Mary Grabar and Tina Trent
Free and Open to the Public
Sunday, November 3, 2013, 2:00 p.m. — Refreshments Follow Lecture
The Solarium, 321 W. Hill Street, Decatur, GA 30030 (Oakhurst Neighborhood)
Since emerging from hiding in the 1980’s, former Weather Underground and Black Panther terrorists who once bombed police stations and robbed banks now use college and university campuses to advance their radical politics. Mary Grabar and Tina Trent, both Ph.D.’s and former college instructors, will speak about the toxic influence of “tenured radicals” on higher education.
Mary Grabar will tell the story of how Weatherman Bill Ayers’ vision of education as classroom-based “revolution” has become the dominant teaching philosophy in schools of education, including Common Core.
Tina Trent will discuss how the embrace of radical politics by women’s studies departments has led to a campus-based feminist movement that is increasingly anti-law enforcement and actually opposed to efforts to address violent crimes against women through traditional legal channels.
This lecture is made possible through the generosity of the Devereaux F. and Dorothy M. McClatchey Foundation and sponsored by the Georgia Chapter of the National Association of Scholars.
All are welcome for an afternoon of stimulating discussion. Drinks and refreshments will be served. Free parking is available in the parking lot and on the street. Handicapped accessible. For additional information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
