Stunning start for Summer Academy. Some seats still available in Charlestown.
MCFL Summer Academy previewed in Worcester on Wednesday.We had sixteen impressive high school students from almost that many towns, some adults, and a young friend from New Jersey.The students are the kind who look you right in the eye, put back the chairs without being asked, and ask thoughtful questions.
We heard this back from an older brother who had brought a van full of boys, "I know they all plan to come to all of the sessions now (some were originally unsure) so that speaks well of Prof. Franks and Mr. Day's presentations."
Yes. David Franks, Chair MCFL Board, who talked about "Anthropology, Ethics, and Human Rights" and Tom Day, Regional Coordinator, Pioneer Valley Region, who talked about Roe v Wade, Doe v Bolton, their antecedentnts and progeny, were extremely informative and very well-received. See them here.
We are fortunate enough to be hosted by the Burncoat Baptist Church on Burncoat Street.The facilities are lovely and convenient, and the staff is a delight to work with.
CHARLESTOWN:Because the program in Boston starts a week later, students can still hear David and Tom at Boston's first week, the 13th.Linda Thayer will speak in Worcester next week and Boston the week after. The six weeks continue in that manner.
