Education should craft well-rounded, harmonious human beings
Irie Glajar was born in 1955 in Romania where he was raised and received his college
education in mathematics and computer science. In 1981 he defected from the Communist
regime of Romania and spent several months in a political refugee camp in Italy.
In 1982 he received his Green Card in order to immigrate into the United States and
since then has been teaching mathematics in Austin, Texas, which he finds very rewarding.
Over the years he has published several educational articles and has presented at
many professional conferences in the United States and Canada. His main interest
is the philosophy of general education and the improvement of human life. His extensive
research and first hand experience in science, religion, and spirituality led to
the writing of this book.
Beside family activities and writing, Irie Glajar finds great pleasure in music,
traveling, gardening, and sports such as tennis and volleyball.
