Quad speakers available to schools

Are you an educator looking for ways to bring Quad programs into your school?

Speakers in the Schools, a New York State Council for the Humanities program, offers more than 150 free curriculum-enhancing lectures for public and private high school communities across New York state. Topics include national and New York state history, anthropology, philosophy, media and literature. This year, they offer a special selection of lectures exploring the themes of discovery and progress raised by the Quadricentennial, including lectures exploring technology, commerce and transportation, and environmental conservation.

Visit their Web site for more info. If a school's application is successful, the lecturer's honorarium and travel expenses are completely covered by the council. Speakers in the Schools is made possible by funding from the New York State Legislature.
