"Diseconomy of Neglect"
The loss of human values is a tragedy, but a bigger tragedy is the absence of a sense of loss. Poverty and neglect are the main culprits that dehumanize people. Dr. Shah, who has worked with many marginalized social groups throughout the world, particularly children, argues that the only way out is through grass root education, because education has the potential to recreate the awareness of belonging. Dr. Shah looks forward to returning to the University of Illinois to share his experiences and stories.
