The Latest Issue of Dayton Magazine features an Interview with Merle Wilberding
In its March 2014 issue Dayton Magazine featured an interview with Merle Wilberding, long-time member of Coolidge Wall Co, LPA, and his recent book, Haki and the Rule of Law. Haki is a children’s activity book aimed primarily at children in the 4th, 5th and 6th grades, but it has been used successfully in all K-12 years.
Thanks to a $40,000 grant from the Ohio State Bar Foundation, Children’s Historical Publishing Company (“CHP”) was able to publish this second edition of Haki and, more importantly, CHP has been able to distribute Haki to virtually all of the public schools in cities throughout Ohio, including Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton, Toledo, Akron, Canton, Hamilton and a host of other cities.
The book is aligned with the Core Curriculum in Ohio and, better yet, the book is designed to teach children that the “rule of law” applies to all phases of their lives, whether they are at school, at church, at home, the playground, or anywhere else. There are features in the book that show how police officers and the court system play an important role in the “rule of law” and how that may help students develop their goals and actions during their own lives.
Merle Wilberding has written a large number of books, articles, and commentary on topics that range from technical law review articles, to literary writing in the Antioch Review, and to commentary on life in a variety of newspapers, magazine and websites.
