As part of my doctoral program, we have “Research Day” every semester. Students design presentations to share their research with the educational community–anyone really–because the event is free. This semester, we were so honored to have Dr. Gene Glass as our keynote speaker. He is certainly one of my heroes as far as teacher critical consciousness goes. He spoke about the perils today in education, and I wanted to share his remarks.
