The world of education is shifting. Educators are working hard to maintain some type of normalcy in the classroom, while PSSAs are canceled and some school districts are ending the school year early. As education shifts, GHSA wants to take a moment to remember that teaching is more than state standards and dissect some of the educational myths outlined in David Orr’s essay, “What is Education For?  

Read David Orr’s essay, “What is Education For?” HERE. 

 The first 15 minutes of each Happy Hour will be a brief presentation on the topic, which will lead into a guided discussion. There will be a summary of the reading, so don’t feel like you need to read it to participate in the conversation. The Zoom link will be sent upon registering. Contact Ellen Conrad ( with any questions.
