SCARSDALE, N.Y. - Scarsdale's Tom Sobol dedicated his life to education, which he chronicles in a new memoir that his wife, Harriet, will lead a discussion on at the Scarsdale Library on April 3.
"My Life in School" has a limited printing, but may be reserved by emailing Harriet at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sobol, 81, was superintendent of Scarsdale schools from 1971 to 1987 and state commissioner of education from 1987 to 1995. He taught education policy and ethics at Columbia Teacher's College and is responsible for the state's New Compact for Learning.
The educational innovator shares his experiences and insights into the education system.
“We are pleased to welcome Harriet Sobol to the library this April to discuss Tom Sobol’s latest book," said Elizabeth Bermel, director of the Scarsdale Library. "We are confident that this event will be another successful way in which the library will continue to offer new and exciting opportunities for our members to connect with the literary community.”
The book discussion begins at 7:30 p.m. April 3. The Scarsdale Public Library is on 54 Olmsted Road.
