Please join Conservative Arkansas for our October monthly meeting, when we’ll host Dr. James Shuls for a discussion on Common Core. Dr. Shuls is the education policy analyst at the Show-Me Institute in St. Louis, Missouri, a research and educational institute dedicated to improving the quality of life for all citizens of Missouri by advancing sensible, well-researched solutions to state and local policy issues.
The work of the institute is rooted in the American tradition of free markets and individual liberty. The institute’s scholars seek to move beyond the 20th-century mindset that every problem has a government solution. Instead, they develop policies that respect the rights of the individual, encourage creativity and hard work, and nurture independence and social cooperation.
James Shuls earned his Ph.D. in education policy from the University of Arkansas. He holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in elementary education. Prior to pursuing his doctorate, James taught first grade and fifth grade in southwest Missouri. His work has been featured in numerous media outlets, including: Phi Delta Kappan, Social Science Quarterly, Education Week, The Rural Educator, Education News, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and the Arkansas-Democrat Gazette.
