Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.

One aspect of Dr. King’s writing that is often overlooked was his concern for the pace of scientific and technological advances.

About ivonprefontaine

I am a retired educator who is currently completing a PhD. Prior to teaching, I worked in private industry for 15 years and returned to university to earn my education degree. For the last 17 years I taught, I was a teacher in a unique, progressive, alternative educational school of choice. Currently, I am engaged in a doctoral program at Gonzaga University in Spokane. My dissertation topic is how teachers experience becoming who they are as teachers, as human subjects.
