The Touro Teacher

The Touro Teacher is the research journal of the undergraduate education program of the Lander College of Arts and Sciences.

The Journal is dedicated to the many Touro College Students who have been fascinated by the history and philosophy of education from ancient times to the present. The focus of the research in the journal is based upon the question: How did education in the past influence education in the present? By examining the past, we develop a better understanding of how education in today's schools came about.
