Benjamin Franklin High School is extremely honored to announce that Dr. Larry Arnn, President of Hillsdale College, will be speaking at Benjamin Franklin High School. Dr. Arnn is one of the leading voices in the United Stated regarding many principles that are highly valued by Benjamin Franklin charter schools, such as liberty, constitutionalism, and the need for a robust education in the Western Tradition. Dr. Arnn is a constitutional scholar, author, lecturer, and educator. He is also an expert in classical education and the history of American education. Dr. Arnn studied international history and modern history at the London School of Economics at Oxford. While in England, he worked as Director of Research for Sir Martin Gilbert, the official biographer of Winston Churchill.
Dr. Arnn can be heard each Friday from 6-7 pm on syndicated radio via the Hugh Hewitt show (locally on KKNT 960) where Dr. Arnn guides listeners through the great people, great ideas, and great works of Western Civilization. Archives of these broadcasts can be found as podcasts under the label Hillsdale Dialogues, and they are extremely entertaining, informative, and highly recommended. Hillsdale also publishes Imprimis, a free monthly digest dedicated to educating citizens and promoting civil and religious liberty by covering cultural, economic, political, and educational issues of enduring significance. In the interest of spreading the ideals of constitutional government and free market ideas, Hillsdale College also offers several online courses, including history, economics, and the Constitution.
This is an event that should not be missed. Because he believes so strongly in our vision, Dr. Arnn has agreed to speak at our school; this opportunity will most likely not present itself again. Dr. Arnn’s lecture for this event is titled, “Liberty and Learning.” There is no better spokesman in the country for a classical and constitutional education. Please make arrangements to attend – you will not be disappointed.
This is a free ticketed event. Tickets are available at all Benjamin Franklin charter schools. For more information call 480-558-1197. Tickets will be limited to 4 per family. No children under 12 years will be permitted to this event.
