Posted on: 1/24/2013 3:19:00 PM

Far Brook School's Seventh Graders learned firsthand about children in other parts of the world from international expert, Dr. Jane Aronson, also a Far Brook parent. The Seventh Grade has been studying the problem of child labor around the world as part of a unit focused on learning how to write a research-based persuasive essay. The students learned about child labor through news articles, U.N. research documents, and video documentaries. They then wrote a speech trying to raise awareness about child labor. At the end of the unit, Dr. Aronson spoke to the class about the rights of children and what can be done to protect them. Dr. Aronson is a pediatrician, specializing in adoption medicine. She is actively involved in advocacy for orphans all over the world and has provided direct services to orphaned children through her non-profit organization, Worldwide Orphans Foundation (WWO), which is currently active in Bulgaria, Ethiopia, Haiti, Serbia, and Vietnam.
