What Did We Learn and When Did We Learn It? - The History of Public Education in Lawrence Township
7:00 PM

Two hundred years ago the world of Lawrence Township schoolchildren was nothing like it is today. But many of the education questions their parents faced sound familiar: where should schooling happen, who should be educated, and who should pay for it? At this free public lecture, you will learn how different generations of Lawrence citizens answered these questions and how our public schools coped with rapid suburbanization and a changing society. Plus, you’ll take a visual tour of all of the schools, past and present. Presented by former Lawrence Township Historian Dennis P. Waters. Co-sponsored by the Lawrence Historical Society. Registration is suggested.
