The Education Forum–On History and English: the Foundation of a Liberal Education

The Cowans’ legacy in the Dallas Institute’s Cowan Center for Education™ is the ideal of a liberal education for all. The center of a liberal education is the humanities, particularly the disciplines of literature (English) and history.

In this two-day event, citizens are invited to join primary and secondary educators to explore the importance of the study of history and English as the foundation for a student’s education and, indeed, for learning throughout life. Through lectures, discussions, and workshops, participants will have opportunities to shore up their knowledge or to learn new disciplines and revive the joy of learning for their work and their lives. Back by popular demand: Friday evening’s “Superintendents’ Salon” and the Saturday extended lunch workshops in multiple disciplines.
