Educating the ‘Whole Child’: Then and Now

For a seventy-year period, when America cared little about the education of African Americans, and discrimination was law and custom, the Bordentown School was an educational utopia. Through class discussion and film analysis, students will analyze how the Bordentown community fostered a well-rounded education for the "whole child," and they will understand the value of this school in the context of segregated society.
