Education Week for Thousands

Print Share

    The opportunity to make “magical memories” and learn “on the Latter-day Saint wavelength” will come to members of the Church in 81 North American cities during the 1975 Education Week programs.

    These descriptions came from participants in last year’s programs, which reached nearly 76,000 “students.” This year, Church Education System scholars will spend three days at each of 86 stake centers teaching subjects ranging from crafts to creative homemaking, from faith to family finances, and from politics to child rearing.

    Initiated at Brigham Young University in 1925, Education Week has grown to be one of the largest noncampus-based educational programs in the United States.

    “All people need this experience once a year, at least, to give them new ideas, hope, and a desire for excellence,” says a participant from Columbia, South Carolina.

    The schedule for 1975 is as follows:
