Actor Richard Dreyfuss Addresses Seniors at Grauer School
The Grauer School welcomed actor Richard Dreyfuss on Friday, April 9, 2010, as he attended civic classes in conjunction with his efforts to advance the mission of the Dreyfuss Initiative.
Dr. Stuart Grauer explained, “The Grauer School, as a grass roots organization, wholly endorses The Dreyfuss Initiative and it’s goal to inspire all students to understand not just how our amazing form of government developed, but why it developed. I’d like to challenge all institutions to get back to their roots: America started out as a government for the people just as our schools started out as a school for the students—unfortunately as organizations grow these founding purposes can become buried too deeply. Our School exists to restore the time for reflecting, debating, and connecting with life’s larger purposes.”
The Dreyfuss Initiative is a nonprofit corporation formed to revive, elevate and enhance the teaching of civics in the U.S. The primary objectives of the organization are to revitalize the instruction of civics and power in American classrooms, create an enhanced American discourse on civics and power through lectures and speaking engagements with a variety of constituents, to conduct seminars and conferences to “teach the teacher” and implement unique teaching and presentation opportunities.

The Grauer School is located at 1500 South El Camino Real in Encinitas and scholarships are available. Grauer seniors take a semester of civics as a graduation requirement. For additional information, call (760) 944-6777 or visit www.grauerschool.com.
