Teacher education chair to speak at Forum


    By Brett Breeden

    M. Winston Egan, chair of the Department of Teacher Education, will speak at the July 23 Forum at 11:05 a.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.

    His address will review the historical roots of American public education, highlighting the decline of social capital in the United States and the public purposes of education and schooling.

    Egan said he has labored long and hard to prepare this Forum to present his distinctive view on the unique role public schools play in developing society.

    After graduating from BYU in elementary education, Egan completed a master”s degree in early childhood education from the University of Oakland and went on to earn a doctorate at the University of Florida in special education with an emphasis in behavior disorders of childhood and youth.

    Prior to coming to BYU in 1993, Egan spent 20 years at the University of Utah in the Department of Special Education in the Graduate School of Education.

    The Forum will be broadcast live on KBYU-TV and KBYU-FM, as well as the BYU-Television satellite network.
