School Choice Report, Season 1 Finale

In our School Choice Report Season 1 finale, host David Hardy is joined by Ursinus College Associate Professor of Education John Spencer.

Professor Spencer believes schooling ought to be thought provoking, life changing, and relevant to the world beyond school. In his classrooms, he has worked to model the kind of collaborative, intellectually engaging approaches to teaching and learning that he hopes his students will foster in their own careers.

Through Professor Spencer’s research of the history of education, he authored In the Crossfire: Marcus Foster and the Troubled history of American School Reform, which is both a biography of an African American school leader and a history of American school reform since the 40s.
