You will be INSPIRED … and you will come away from the webinar with HOPE writ large no matter the extent you are anxious about the future and agonize about modern-day public and/or private school education. The hour is well worth it; the webinar is full of encouraging insights, from Will’s and Robert’s perspectives and from the students’ perspectives. Please give the webinar a go!

The Concord Review: A Quarterly Review of Essays by Students of History (
https://tcr.org/), is an academic journal dedicated to publishing the history research papers of high school students. Its existence proves that it can be done; the Pygmalion Effect in spades! The core belief embodied in The Concord Review is that the pursuit of academic excellence in secondary schools should be given the same attention as the pursuit of excellence in sports and other extracurricular activities. Indeed, many students do exemplary work in history.
