The College of Education would like to thank the J. George Jones, Jr. and Velma Rife Jones Memorial Fund for the 2015 Jones Lecture. Dr. Sonia Nieto was this year's guest lecturer presenting "Why They Teach Now: Teachers Stories of Struggle, Hope and the Future."
"Although for over a century our nation has advanced the ideal that a high-quality and excellent public education is the birth right of all children, our schools cannot fulfill this ambitious and noble purpose unless all of us—parents, policymakers, and the general public—commit ourselves to sustaining education as a public trust and a promise to future generations."
From "Why We Teach." New York: Teachers College Press, 2005.
