Meet the 2018 Brock Prize Laureate: Lee Gordon, the Founder of Hand in Hand
Our guest today is Lee Gordon, the 2018 Laureate of the Brock Prize in Education. Gordon is the founder of Hand in Hand: The Center for Jewish-Arab Education in Israel. This Israeli non-profit organization has created a network of integrated, bi-lingual public schools serving Arab and Jewish children alike. Starting with just 50 students in 1998, as we learn on today's StudioTulsa, Hand in Hand by now has six campuses. It also has, more to the point, some 1,600 or so students who belive in Jewish-Arab partnership and coexistence. Please note that Gordon will appear here in Tulsa on Thursday the 8th at the Brock Prize Symposium, which happens from 2:30pm to 4:30pm at TU's Helmerich Center for American Research (at 1400 N. Gilcrease Museum Road; near the Gilcrease Museum).
