Mens Rights Edmonton is proud to host the Edmonton segment of the “Odyssey for Equality- West”.
On July 29th we invite one and all to come out and hear a lecture by Dr. James S. Brown titled “Rescuing Our Underachieving Sons”.
The Lecture will be held at 7pm at the Edmonton Public library in the Edmonton Room. Stanley Milner Branch (main) 7 Winston Churchill Sq. Admission is free, but we are requesting donations of $5 to help cover the cost of the event and put Dr. Brown’s proposed solutions into motion.
Dr. James Brown is a Canadian parent, grandparent, teacher and scholar who is retired after a 40-year career in education. Dr. Brown graduated from Teacher’s College as an elementary school teacher in 1965. Following that, he went on to earn six university degrees, including a doctorate in education, and post doctoral diplomas in Educational Administration and in Curriculum and Instructional Leadership.
Dr. Brown has been an elementary school teacher, a secondary school teacher, a department head, a principal and an Ontario Supervisory Officer. He has taught all grades from junior kindergarten to grade 13, including special education, in Canada and the United Kingdom, and has lectured at the graduate school level for several universities. He has five children, (three sons and two daughters), and nine grandchildren, (three grandsons and six granddaughters).
Among the many serious issues that parents, teachers, and all of society are facing today is the underachievement of boys in the education system. But how can this issue be addressed? Where can those concerned find the best resolution to this problem? Dr. Brown helps parents, teachers, and the society look into this crucial issue as he provides knowledge and insights during this lecture and in his new book, Rescuing our Underachieving Sons.
