Ukraine Dialogue: Education as the Battlefront of Democracy
On April 6, 2017 at 2pm, Manor College will host it’s third Ukraine focused dialogue, with the focus and title being, Ukraine: Education as the Battlefront of Democracy.
This dialogue will be held in the Manor College auditorium at 2pm (reserve your FREE ticket here) and will host a networking luncheon prior to the dialogue at 12:30pm (purchase your luncheon ticket here).
This dialogue will examine the most crucial areas of educational reform needed in Ukraine in order to protect and preserve free and democratic ideals. Currently, the chief looming crises in Ukrainian education are conflicting ideals held by post-communist era sympathizers who have failed to embrace Western philosophies, and pay-to-GPA corruption where those entrusted with educating Ukraine’s students are accepting cash for grades. The issues have connection through Ukraine’s history with Russia and the resultant impact of the strained relationship on Ukraine’s economy.
