Liberty Classical Academy of White Bear Lake will be hosting Mitch Pearlstein, the Founder and Senior Fellow at Center of the American Experiment, on Tuesday, November 13th at 7 pm for their Education in Society event. During his discussion, Dr. Pearlstein will be asking and addressing the question, “Why Do American Students Do So Poorly in International Comparisons?”

Dr. Pearlstein is the Founder and Senior Fellow at Center of the American Experiment. His work in education and policy change spans several decades and focuses consistently on building education policy rooted in cultural and social context. He has worked with American Experiment since he launched the think tank in 1990. He also worked with the US Department of Education, was the special assistant for policy and communications to Gov. Albert H. Quie of Minnesota, a research fellow at the Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota, and assistant to University of Minnesota President C. Peter Magrath. He has been a columnist, author, policy expert, and thought leader since his launch into educational leadership in the 1970’s.

Dr. Pearlstein’s focus for the evening’s discussion will be on the implications in our classrooms of various societal and cultural conditions, particularly in the family. The corresponding remedies to these issues have implications on how and why we educate as well as how our education compares internationally. The event is free and open to the public.
