Penn State Altoona’s chapter of Kappa Delta Pi presents Bill Ayers, Thursday, December 10 in the Slep Student Center. Ayers will speak on, “Democracy and Public Schools” from 4:00-5:30 p.m.
During the 2008 Presidential campaign, a controversy arose over his past contacts with President Barack Obama. Ayers had formerly been involved with an anti-government extremist group called Weather Underground Organization.
Ayers is now an elementary education theorist who works with education reform, curriculum, and instruction. He is a professor in the College of Education at the University of Illinois.
The event is free and open to the public, and is first-come, first-seated.
