School One announces new writing and education programs

For adults

Conversation Series: Education and Learning

School One’s new Conversation Series is a bi-monthly discussion group where we’ll talk about quality teaching, different kinds of schools, education in other countries, policy issues like school choice, and a host of related topics. Each session we’ll dive into an education-related book and discuss its implications for Rhode Island and beyond. This group is open to the public.

Our first conversation will be January 27, 2020 and we will discuss The Smartest Kids in the World by Amanda Ripley. 6-7:30 p.m. To sign up, contact Diana Champa at School One,401-331-2497 or dianac@school-one.org.
