Equality & Deeper Learning

Community | Education | Equity | Public Policy

The 4:00 PM event topic, Equality and Deeper Learning, will examine the ways in which diversity related to race, language, culture and language continue to influence patterns of inequality and social relations in American society. For the past twenty years, American policymakers have chosen to rely almost exclusively on schools to address the issue of racial inequality and demographic change. However, educators have been provided with relatively little guidance in how to do this work. This presentation will describe strategies that could be pursued to counter and reduce racial inequality and improve relationships across social boundaries.

NOTE: Pedro Noguera also spoke at a later 7:00 PM event at Elm Place Middle School, on the topic, Education for a Changing Society.
