American Officials Visit Taiwan | Margaret Lewis, Shelley Rigger

NCUSCR Events

In August 2020, U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex M. Azar II visited Taiwan, the highest level American cabinet officer to do so since the establishment of diplomatic relations with the PRC. A month later Under Secretary of State Keith Krach followed, representing the U.S. government at former President Lee Teng-hui’s funeral. What do these high-level visits suggest about the Trump administration’s policies toward Taiwan and the PRC, and about cross-strait relations? The National Committee held a virtual program with Professors Margaret K. Lewis and Shelley Rigger on October 27.

Margaret Lewis | The U.S. Department of Justice's China Initiative

NCUSCR Events

The Department of Justice launched the China Initiative in November 2018 to counter national security threats emanating from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). In February 2020, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced that it had launched about a thousand active investigations under the Initiative; the China Initiative is gaining momentum.    In a forthcoming article, Seton Hall University Law Professor Margaret K. Lewis argues that using “China” as the glue connecting cases under the Initiative’s umbrella creates an overly inclusive conception of the threat, and attaches a criminal taint to entities that have an even tangential connection to China. A better path would be to discard the “China Initiative” framing, focus on cases’ individual characteristics, and broaden the Department of Justice’s interactions with non-governmental experts.    On June 9, 2020, the National Committee hosted a virtual program with Margaret Lewis where she discussed her article.

The Outstanding Ohioans Show, Episode 41-Interview with Anastasia Congdon & Margaret Lewis, Founders of Kokosing Valley School

Outstanding Ohioans

In Episode 41, I had the privilege of interviewing Anastasia Congdon & Margaret Lewis, Founders of Kokosing Valley School in Gambier, Ohio (Knox County). Connect with the Outstanding Ohioans show on Facebook, Itunes, or Stitcher The Kokosing Valley School is based on the Sudbury School Model founded in 1968.  It is a model based on freedom, self-paced learning, mixed peer ages, play, interest exploration, and democratic processes. It is in fact nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate little plant, aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom; without this it goes to wreck and ruin without fail. -Albert Einstein Here are some of the highlights from our conversation: Anastasia and Margaret's backgrounds prior to founding the school in 2015 How each person came across the Sudbury model The tipping point for taking action for their children, and why they felt the Sudbury model was the best fit The inspirational, massive action they took to create the school within 7 months are they impacted by the school establishment of the state how the beautiful property contributes to the experience of the students the what a day looks like for the school children the parental support needed to make it successful the benefits the children receive from the Sudbury model, including the value of mixed ages all together historical outcomes of students that have gone through this model their vision for the future and legacy they hope to leave behind Some resources to learn more about the Sudbury school model or mentioned in the interview: Research articles and videos Free At Last:  The Sudbury Valley School book by Daniel Greenberg Starting A Sudbury School:  A Summary of the Experiences of Fifteen Start Ups by Daniel Greenberg Free to Learn by Peter Gray Creative Schools:  The Grassroots Revolution that is Transforming Education by Sir Ken Robinson To contact the school, you may do the following: website Facebook page Email at info@kokosingvalleyschool.org Phone at (740) 427-2037 Thank you for listening.
