At a time when education is often misrepresented and misunderstood throughout the nation, MCI’s goal is to build a culture to prepare students for success beyond graduation. In his presentation entitled “Culture before Curriculum,” Mr. Hopkins will discuss his firm belief that a school’s culture must be healthy before students can begin to achieve their potential in the classroom. He notes: “Individual and community respect, integrity, self-esteem and pride must be nurtured before students can absorb and truly relate to a school’s curriculum. It is only then that a school can develop a genuine culture of curiosity and scholarship.”
The Community Forum will be held on November 13th at 6:30 p.m. at the First Universalist Church, 8 Easy Street, Pittsfield, Maine. Admission is free. A question and answer period will follow the presentation.
