Professor Glenn Recently Spoke at Two Global Conferences
Professor Charles Glenn recently spoke at two global conferences. Glenn was the keynote speaker at the first-ever Global Home Education Conference (GHEC), in Berlin, in early November. GHEC 2012 is a leadership conference for movement leaders, parents, and policy makers interested in home education. The topic this year was “Can Parents Be Trusted?”
Glenn was also a closing speaker at the Second World Conference on the Right to and Rights in Education, in Brussels, in November. The World Conference aims at assessing the current state of education in the world.
Glenn also served as editor of Balancing Freedom, Autonomy, and Accountability in Education, Vol. 1-4, published by Wolf Legal Publishers, alongside Jan De Groof. This collection discusses various national education systems and how they balance among freedom of parents to choose schools, autonomy of educators, and public accountability.
