Summer Brings Lots of Learning

Summer classes available to the public in the Cambridge area.

With summer just around the corner, many will be wondering where to get their education fix. Cambridge is the largest educational hub on the East Coast, surrounded by colleges and universities; therefore it has plenty of summer classes to offer its residents.

As a college student, I am no stranger to trying to get out and do fun things on a tight budget. Here is a list of free and (a few) extremely cheap classes offered in the Cambridge area.

You’re the Expert

Live Taping of Science/Comedy Panel Show at Brattle Theatre

Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival Boston 2015

I love radio shows. And the only thing about radio shows that I love more than simply listening to them is attending or participating in a live performance.

Last Saturday night at the Brattle Theatre, I was part of a sold-out crowd – partially due to free tickets for MIT students – enjoying the live taping of a new WBUR panel show called “You’re the Expert.”

Charter Schools Making Gains Nationwide

Cost to send child to public school in Cambridge highest in state; Cambridge home to 3 charter schools

In the city of Cambridge, the average cost to send a child to a public school is $27,474. That’s the highest in the entire state. As a result, Cambridge Public Schools have a good reputation in Massachusetts. However, Cambridge charter schools may gain many more applications next year as a result of a study recently released by Stanford University.

Divestment at Lesley U: Fossil Free Lesley

The other Cambridge, MA school that could be divesting

This past Sunday, Lesley students for a Fossil Free Lesley picketed a dinner with the Lesley University Trustees and a visiting accreditation team.  At the same time Harvard students' Heat Week is big news in Cambridge. Bill McKibben and other luminaries will be there. At Lesley University, my alma mater, and where I am currently an adjunct, we are accustomed to being in the shadow of the big HU in the Square. And here is where I would like to introduce some friendly competition.
