4:00 – Sandra Fluke and Birth Control as a Fundamental Human Right for Co-Eds
With a six year hiatus between her undergraduate time and Georgetown Law, Sandra Fluke has had plenty of involvement with the pro-contraception agenda. A Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies major at Cornell, Fluke is also a past president of Law Students for Reproductive Justice. While she’s presented herself in persona a young woman suffering because of Georgetown’s policies, it’s more likely that Fluke has had her sights set on the school for quite a while. Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse is here to analyze Fluke’s argument that birth control is a fundamental right of co-eds that should be provided free of charge.

5:40 – Revitalizing Catholic Schools: Alternative Analysis and Solutions for Catholic Schools
Recently the O'Meara, Ferguson, Whelan and Conway firm sponsored a Catholic Education Symposium focused around a new White Paper entitled Revitalizing Catholic Schools: Alternative Analysis and Solutions for Catholic Schools. The White Paper presents the results of an analysis of the data gleaned from their consulting work over the past two years with over 400 Catholic schools and over 200 pastor interviews. For Catholic education to continue to flourish, we must come together as Church and provide Catholic schools with advice and counsel on the best possible use of their temporal resources as they work to further their missions. Every school is different and manifests its mission in unique ways, but there are important elements of best practices which can lead to continued success. Pat O’Meara joins us.
