3/29/12 ASHLAND, OH -- The Ashbrook Center at Ashland University will host an April 20 colloquium titled “Re-Schooling America: What Schools Ought to Be, and What Americans Must Do to Get Them.” The colloquium will be led by Terrence Moore, assistant professor of history at Hillsdale College.
Moore earned an A.B. in history from the University of Chicago in 1990 and a Ph.D. in history from the University of Edinburgh in 1999. He taught at Ashland University for two years. Dr. Moore also served as a lieutenant in the U. S. Marine Corps from 1990-1993.
For seven years he was the principal of Ridgeview Classical Schools, a K-12 charter school in Fort Collins, Colo. Ridgeview’s high school was twice ranked the No. 1 public high school in the state.
Dr. Moore writes and speaks frequently on the issues of liberal education, limited government, and traditional manhood. His article "Wimps and Barbarians: the Sons of Murphy Brown" (Claremont Review of Books, Winter, 2003) was blogged by over 100 websites and discussed by Hugh Hewitt, Laura Ingraham and Rush Limbaugh.
He has written articles for The Washington Times, Human Events, Big Government, Touchstone, The Family in America, Big Peace, Big Hollywood, and ricochet.com. He is also a consultant to the Hillsdale Barney Charter School Initiative and the Ridgeview Classical Institute, both organizations designed to bring more school choice to America and improve the quality of existing charter schools.
At Hillsdale, Dr. Moore teaches the core western and American heritage courses, upper-level courses in intellectual history, including a course on the enlightenment, as well as a course on the nature and history of manhood. Dr. Moore is the author of “The Perfect Game,” a novel about real boys growing up in Texas during the Reagan years, available on Amazon. He is married and has four children.
