Robert Lazar Selected for Research Program

Robert Lazar, a 15-year veteran, was selected for the research program by the Horace Mann Educators Corp. and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library to study the life and legacy of the 16th President at his home and library in Springfield, Ill., in June.

Fifty teachers were chosen to participate. Applicants wrote essays on why Lincoln is still relevant in the classroom today. Lazar wrote that Lincoln was president during a time when the nation was divided, not unlike today. “It is my responsibility as an educator to teach students today of the resiliency of our nation and how great men like Lincoln prevailed at a moment when darkness fell upon our nation,” Lazar wrote.
