Who is Karen Horwitz?


Karen Horwitz graduated with honors in 1963 from Oak Park River Forest High School in Oak Park, Illinois, and from the University of Illinois, Champaign where she earned a BA in Elementary Education in 1966.

When teaching jobs were scarce during the 1970′s, she worked in business as a sales representative and as a marketing director for an educational film company.

However, teaching always was her first love. Her passion for Education motivated her to become a writer, to learn the law so she could take a case to the highest court, as well as to found a non-profit organization to educate the public about a serious social ill plaguing our nation – teacher abuse and its underlying issue – White Chalk Crime.

She has raised three children and has three grandchildren who inspire her to do the work of exposing the truth about Education; she believes that they, as well as all children, deserve better.
