The Earlham College Educational forum is designed for students in the Master of Arts in Teaching program and the Master of Education program to share their research with other members of the K-12 teaching community. In the words of Roland Barth from his book, Learning by Heart:

"I've yet to see a school where the learning curves of the youngsters are off the chart upward while the learning curves of the adults are off the chart downward … Teachers and students go hand in hand as learners or they don't go at all." (Barth, 2001, p. 23)
