On November 9, Dr. Deani Van Pelt will present a live national speech, “Charting New Horizons for Independent Education”. Deani will outline a research-based analysis of our educational moment. What is happening on the front lines of education across our country and what trends are behind this significant shift?
She will also explore what the future of education might look like in Canada. Will Christian and independent education emerge as the vital movement of renewal in our time? What might that look like? What should that look like? And how can you play a role in the lives of future generations?
Following Deani’s presentation, Brian Dijkema, Cardus Vice President of External Affairs, will lead a discussion with her and Dr. Paul Bennett, a well known and respected researcher on education performance in public school systems.
