Pass or Fail? The State of Education

Submitted By Craig Cable

The state of public education will be examined at Lifetree Cafˇ on Tuesday, March 18. The program, ÒPass or Fail? The State of Education,Ó features filmed stories from Nikhil Goyal, author of ÒOne Size Does Not Fit All: A StudentÕs Assessment of School,Ó and Sajan George, the founder of Matchbook Learning, a school-turnaround organization.

ÒThirteen years of being in the system annihilated my creative potential,Ó says Goyal, a recent high school graduate. ÒSchool stunted my creative prowess. I came to the realization that I was seen not as a human being, but as a test score.Ó He now advocates a number of changes for the educational system.

Participants in the Lifetree program will discuss the current state of public education and what changes might improve the system for schools, parents, and students.

Lifetree Cafˇ is a place where people gather for conversation on life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
