This sober, smart, clear-headed discussion couldnt come at a more critical time in American life.
Our speakers will shed much-needed light on the harms inflicted on our children through the lockdowns and mandates. Drs. Atlas and Tooley will consider whether the virus merely exposed the deep-rooted problems in America's state-run education system...or revealed the deep and many problems endemic in our state-run education system. And, most important, they will discuss effective opportunities for educational innovations benefiting our schoolchildren as a result.
This promises to be a thought-provoking, enlightening, and hope-filled discussion on the critical issues facing America's education system and civil liberties.
Almost overnight a virus has brought into question Americas nearly 200-year-old government-run K-12 school-systemand prompted an urgent search for alternatives. But where should we turn to find them?
A distinguished scholar of education and the worlds foremost expert on private, low-cost innovative education, Tooley takes readers to some of the worlds most impoverished communities located in some of the worlds most dangerous placesincluding India and such war-torn countries as Sierra Leone, Liberia, and South Sudan. There, in places where education experts fear to tread, Tooley finds thriving private schools that government, multinational NGOs, and even international charity officials deny exist.
When Dr. Scott W. Atlas was tapped by Donald Trump to join his COVID Task Force, he was immediately thrust into a maelstrom of scientific disputes, policy debates, raging egos, politically motivated lies, and cynical media manipulation. Numerous myths and distortions surround the Trump Administrations handling of the crisis, and many pressing questions remain unanswered. Did the Trump team really bungle the response to the pandemic? Were the right decisions made about travel restrictions, lockdowns, and mask mandates? Are Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx competent medical experts or timeserving bureaucrats? Did half a million people really die unnecessarily because of Trumps incompetence?
