Transforming Education from Kindergarten to College
Georgia Chapter, National Association of Scholars: lecture by Mary Grabar and Tina Trent

The Solarium, 321 W. Hill Street, Decatur, GA 30030 (Oakhurst Neighborhood)
Since emerging from hiding in the 1980’s, former Weather Underground and Black Panther terrorists who once bombed police stations and robbed banks now use college and university campuses to advance their radical politics. Mary Grabar and Tina Trent, both Ph.D.’s and former college instructors, will speak about the toxic influence of “tenured radicals” on higher education.
Mary Grabar will tell the story of how Weatherman Bill Ayers’ vision of education as classroom-based “revolution” has become the dominant teaching philosophy in schools of education, including Common Core.
Tina Trent will discuss how the embrace of radical politics by women’s studies departments has led to a campus-based feminist movement that is increasingly anti-law enforcement and actually opposed to efforts to address violent crimes against women through traditional legal channels.
This lecture is made possible through the generosity of the Devereaux F. and Dorothy M. McClatchey Foundation and sponsored by the Georgia Chapter of the National Association of Scholars.
Drinks and refreshments will be served. Free parking is available in the parking lot and on the street. Handicapped accessible.

Socialist Worker, in weighing in on the controversy, declares "We stand with Zinn."Posted October 3, 2013, by Mary Grabar: Miffed by the fact that a layperson, like former Indiana governor and current president of Purdue University, would dare question any history book a history professor or education professor chooses--especially when that book is by the late communist "historian" Howard Zinn--a bunch of professors are organizing a "
my article about his tour and the same old, same old charges by radical college administrators that objections to his visits constitute censorship. No one is censoring Bill Ayers, just saying that he has nothing of value to say. He contradicts himself about being a terrorist--unless you don't think planting bombs is terrorism. Look for the self-serving lies about having been an overly idealistic college student when he did all that and being a dedicated activist, husband, and father afterwards. Not true.
