Megan Red Shirt-Shaw’s Harvard Graduate School of Education Convocation Speech

Megan Red Shirt-Shaw delivers a moving and inspiring speech at Harvard Graduate School of Education Convocation.

In her speech, I felt Maxine Greene’s call “on us in education to take ourselves and our condition more seriously, to take ourselves as educators more seriously…how could we help children develop the sense of trust in their own society, in their own country and at the same time become capable of outrage when something offends our basic values.”

Have a listen. Shaw’s words capture many of the themes, perspectives, and theories we have been reading and learning about. I hope it inspires you like it does me.
