Learning Center Experience
Kaplan University is among the first 100 signatories for the White House-backed initiative Operation Educate the Educators.
Maggie Morgan, Assistant Dean of the School of Education, recently attended a White
House-backed event honoring members of Operation Educate the Educators, an
initiative aimed at helping children whose parents are connected to the
military. Kaplan University is among the
program’s first 100 signatories.
At the beginning of the
evening, Maggie got an unexpected surprise: She was invited backstage to meet
Dr. Jill Biden, wife of United States Vice President Joe Biden, and General
Raymond Odierno, U.S. Army Chief of Staff, who are among the program’s chief
“It was something I’ll
never forget,” said Maggie, who is the wife of an active-duty military officer
and the mother of two children. “Finding better ways to address the unique
needs of military children has long been a personal, as well as an educational
goal for me. As both a parent and a higher education administrator, I am
thrilled that someone in the top echelons of the government is focusing their
attention on these children’s needs.”
Operation Educate the
Educators aims to prepare educators to lead classrooms and develop cultures
that are responsive to children in military families. Kaplan University’s
School of Education will offer multiple opportunities throughout the
year for students and faculty to participate in the initiative, Maggie said.
“Children ofmilitary personnel have typically been a hidden minority in
the education world,” she explained. “These children relocate every two to
three years on average and change schools frequently. They often have
difficulties adjusting to differing curricular requirements, instructional
methods, and school climates.”
To further complicate
matters, the children sometimes face parental separations due to service
requirements and deployments.
“We are proud to be a part of such
an important and necessary initiative,” said Maggie. “Military children can be
found in nearly every school district in the United States. The School of Education is committed to increasing awareness and developing
educators that are prepared to make a difference in the lives of these
Operation Educate the Educators is a an outgrowth of Joining
Forces, an initiative spearheaded by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Biden,
who is a community college teacher.
Members of The American Association of Colleges for Teacher
Education and the Military Child Education Coalition lead the initiative. For more information on Operation Educate the Educators,
