Teaching in this Present Age

students at Veritas

Do you fear your child is stifled by current educational norms and pressure to perform well on standardized tests rather than become a deep thinker who experiences a love of learning?

Does your child deserve an opportunity to learn how to think?

We encourage you to join us for a free lecture oriented towards parents of K-12 children entitled “Joyful Rebellion: Teaching in This Present Age” by Dr. Carl Trueman. This event will be held at Westminster Presbyterian Church on Thursday, March 8, from 7:00-8:30 PM.

  • address the way in which the culture presses Americans towards thinking of education in increasingly utilitarian terms

  • discuss how identity politics prove to be a more and more intrusive presence in all of life

The goal of this lecture is for parents and teachers to take a stand against the pressures of this present age by showing children what it means to be truly human, to appreciate the beauty and complexity of life in all of its richness. 

If you know a family or friend who might be interested in our event, feel free to invite them too! There is no fee for the lecture, but reservations are required as space is limited.
