    As a doctoral student in Adult Learning and Leadership, Vickie Ndibo is new to working with elementary school students.

  • Why Should I Worry About Schools My Children Won’t Attend?

    Why Should I Worry About Schools My Children Won’t Attend?

    The title for this essay comes from Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, specifically from a debate between the brothers Levin over social responsibility. Sergei, visiting his country sibling, argues the importance of hospitals and schools. "Can there be any doubt of the usefulness of education?" he asks. "If it's good for you, it is good for everyone." Konstantin counters, "Maybe all that is good, but why should I worry about setting up medical centers that I will never use and schools that I won't send my children to-'?" Sergei changes the topic.
