Preparing Teachers and Educating Citizens: The Simulated Congressional Hearing

Chapter

Abstract

  • Derek Bok, former President of Harvard University, was recently asked by interviewer Charlie Rose what topic he would choose if he could deliver one last lecture to a group of college students. His response was immediate: first, he would address the issue of ethics in American life, and second, civic education. He, along with many others, shares the concern that now, more than ever, Americans need the knowledge, skill, and will to participate actively in public life.
