Education: Policy and Perspective for the Christian

Charles L. Glenn, EdD, PhD
  • What is the calling of the Christian with respect to education---as parent, as professional educator, as engaged citizen in a pluralistic context?
  • What is the difference between public and private schools, and what difference does that make in practice? 
  • Why is there a persistent achievement gap among ethnic groups in our society, and how do we evaluate the potential remedies?

Boston Fellows is thrilled to invite you to join the civic discussion, in an open, in-depth conversation led by Prof. Charles L. Glenn.

10:00am - 3:00pm
This event is free and open to the public.

Charles Glenn began his career in the early Sixties as assistant pastor of an inner-city church in Boston’s Roxbury section and an active participant in the Freedom Movement in Boston and the South. In 1970 he joined the Massachusetts Department of Education, with responsibility for equity (race, ethnicity, religion, sex) and urban education. As Professor at Boston University, he taught educational policy and history until 2016, serving as department chairman for 15+ years.

Topics of his recent publications include the education of immigrant and racial minorities, educational freedom, and a study of character and citizenship education in Islamic secondary schools across the United States. He has served as a consultant to Russian, Chinese, Israeli, Ukrainian and Italian education authorities, to states and major cities across the United States, and as expert witness in court cases on school finance, desegregation, bilingual education, homeschooling, and church-state relations in education.  He and his wife have seven children and live in Boston.
