What if everyone had a classical education? | Rebekah Hagstrom | TEDxMahtomedi
Rebekah Hagstrom is headmaster of Liberty Classical Academy (LCA). Rebekah received a B.S. in communication disorders (summa cum laude) and an M.A. in speech pathology from the University of Minnesota. She and her husband, Peter, have four children. Rebekah worked at Regions Hospital as a speech pathologist for over 10 years. She also taught adult education classes at her church, served on
its board, and spoke at various women's ministry events. In raising their children, Peter and Rebekah experienced public education, private college prep schools, and private religious schools. With these schools falling short of their educational expectations, Rebekah founded Liberty Classical Academy.
Rebekah will describe a classical education and explore its benefits in producing citizens who know history, understand logic, are well rounded, and can speak and debate respectfully.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
