Discussion group to consider education, how well does it teach useful skills?

    DEXTER — The May 3 First Friday public discussion at Dexter’s Abbott Memorial Library will examine the role of “education” in passing along culturally important information and skills from generation to generation. As times change, how do we educate ourselves and our children? 
    At 7 p.m. a brief history of local education (both in and out of “school”) will begin the evening, followed by another brief explanation of current educational conditions, after which facilitated discussion evolves until 9 p.m.

    Dexter Dover Area Towns in Transition (DDATT), as sponsor of these monthly discussions, emphasizes community learning about how climate disruption, economic instability, and dependence on fossil fuels can affect the area, and what we can do to make plans for “resiliency.” Education is a major part of this process, and DDATT invites anyone who has ideas or opinions on to come May 3 to share them with friends and neighbors.
