Manila teacher publishes third book
Rodney Lancaster, Manila teacher, recently had his third book published. Lancaster is a history buff and his latest book, "The Historical Significance of Freemasonry to Public School Education," took a lot of research. He has been working on the book for four years.
The book tells of the role Freemasonry played in the expansion of the public school educational system. His research reveals that the 19th century Freemasonry played a major role throughout the educational enrollment during and after the common school movement. It shows how a relatively insignificant number of Freemasons could affect the balance of public education.
Lancaster is a Freemason and 32nd degree Scottish Rite Mason and serves as the director for the Alternative Learning Environment at Manila High School. He has taught in Manila for 10 years.
This book is the first of three he has planned to record the history of the public school education. Books 2 and 3 will tell of the individual states and their roles in the school systems.
Lancaster stressed to his students the importance of continuing their education throughout their lives. He not only uses words, but teaches by example. He is finishing his Doctorate Degree.
His other books include a book of his quotes and a book to help others entitled, "I Survived the Educational Leadership Doctoral Program."
Lancaster wants to be an inspiration to his students and he encourages them to set their goals and work toward reaching them.
He expressed his appreciation to his family for their support and to Publish America. His book is available at www.publishamerica under history.
