Group of students from the Education program, the Honors program, and others have met and read several books centered around concepts related to education entrepreneurship, and the politics and philosophy of education. The groups read a common set of 4-5 books, and discuss them twice per month in a group setting. Groups typically design and participate in a culminating activity at the end of the semester. These activities have included: attending a screening of an education documentary off campus, hosting a movie screening of an education documentary on campus, or hosting panel discussions on campus.
Previous reading groups have focused on:
The intersection of school choice and desegregation.
Free speech in public schools and colleges.
The philosophical arguments behind compulsory schooling.
The book The Cage-busting Teacher by Rick Hess
Panel events have featured speakers from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Georgia General Assembly, GGC, Gwinnett County Public Schools, Atlanta Public Schools, the Georgia Public Policy Foundation, and the Georgia Center for Opportunity.
