Event

YPIN Socratic Seminar
Charters schools in the USA, Corporation-sponsored schools in China, foreign-nonprofit schools in India, and Islamic administered schools in Afghanistan. So many different options to teach the future leaders of this world, but which one is right?

Socratic Seminars aren't for telling you the answers; rather they provide a discussion space to explore the questions. It is a moderated discussion around top issues of the day in true dialectic method. Articles highlighting viewpoints on both sides of an argument are provided as suggested reading, although participants are encouraged to participate even if armed only with their opinions. The Socratic Seminar series does not place parameters on where the discussion may go; rather it provides a starting point and background information to fuel discussion.

Socratic Seminars are sponsored by the Row House Café.
