Andy Phillips, Executive Director of Logos Academy Harrisburg presents Lessons from Preschool: What a White Boy from the Suburbs Learned about Poverty, the Poor, and Educational and Racial Injustice. Andy didn’t know what he didn’t know. Raised in suburban Philadelphia, followed by a 30 year career as a suburban presbyterian pastor, the poor were just not on his radar. But launching Logos Academy changed all that. He was exposed, through the eyes of three-year-olds and their families, to the impact of generational poverty, racial injustice and educational inequities all too common in the urban public school systems. Most troubling of all, he became aware of his own deep, unconscious racism. In this class we’ll explore these issues and how they shape the education and unique approach of the Logos Academy model.
