Larry Rogin And Brendan Sexton: Labor Educators, Russell Allen, Lois S. Gray Mar 1991

Larry Rogin And Brendan Sexton: Labor Educators, Russell Allen, Lois S. Gray

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] This volume came about because their friends and work mates in labor education wanted to do something to pay their respects to two giants in their field—Brendan Sexton and Larry Rogin, who died within a few weeks of each other in the Fall of 1987. Although impressive memorial services were held for Brendan in New York City and for Larry in Washington, D.C. at the AFL-CIO Building, we felt that they should be remembered to a wider audience. Hence, this volume.

I feel honoured in being asked to give this address as one of the the University's foundation professors in 1991.

Widows, Education And Social Change In Twentieth Century Banaras, Nita Kumar Jan 1991

Widows, Education And Social Change In Twentieth Century Banaras, Nita Kumar

CMC Faculty Publications and Research

In the first half of this century, some one dozen women in Banaras played key rotes in channelling the educational movement into new directions, expanding its agenda to include girls, especially poor girls. These women stand out as pioneering in that they founded schools, dynamic in the way they administered and expanded them, and radical in the vision they had for their students. What makes the case of these women particularly interesting is that they were mostly widows. They rejected the familiar stereotypes for widows through their activism, but in subtle ways that retained for them the respect of society ...

This chapter examines the programs undertaken at both state and city levels, as well as the applicability of the New York experience to other public sector jurisdictions. Although the profile of the New York State and city work force differs from that of the rest of the nation, there is much of value here for educators, union leaders, and others involved in public sector employment.
