It will be up to our children—today’s students—to carry forward the ideals of our nation, sustaining and improving on our foundational belief in equal opportunity for all. This critically important conversation is for everyone connected to education, whether in policies, programs, classroom practice or parenting.
We’re excited to announce on EdPalooza’s center stage:
Condoleezza Rice served as our nation’s 66th Secretary of State and national security advisor, and she currently directs the Hoover Institution. An accomplished scholar in political science, she also served as provost of Stanford University and is the author of more than ten books, including Democracy: Stories from the Long Road to Freedom.
Jon Meacham is a Pulitzer Prize-winning author and contributing editor at TIME. His books include In the Hands of the People: Thomas Jefferson on Equality, Faith, Freedom, Compromise, and the Art of Citizenship, offering a collection of inspiring words about how to be a good citizen and why the nation’s founding principles are still so important today. His most recent work is His Truth is Marching On: John Lewis and the Power of Hope.
Moderator Juan Williams is an award-winning journalist and political analyst and the author of six books.
This keynote conversation between two visionaries shares perspectives on the importance of democracy and civic engagement to the future of our country—and the world. They will explore the crucial role of civics education in ensuring young people of today are prepared to successfully lead in a complex, divided and rapidly changing world. During this time of hyper-partisanship, their conversation will also explore educational opportunity, equity, religious freedom, participation in government and the role of each individual in ensuring the long-term viability of our nation.
This is one of three high-profile EdVision sessions at EdPalooza, the largest virtual convening of its kind, bringing together everyone who believes that now is the time to reimagine education.
Join Condoleezza Rice and Jon Meacham on December 3 for this critically important conversation, where you’ll hear about engaging students of all ages in civics education, expanding the narrative of America’s history and why education is at the heart of a strong democracy.
