Pedro Noguera on Education Policy and Reform
His refrain: who is responsible for children's success?
School “reform” is a loaded term that divides many teachers and parents - and pits many well-intentioned educators against one another.
Dr. Pedro Noguera is a leading national voice on education, education reform and the achievement gap. He’s a professor of education at NYU, author of City Schools and the American Dream: Reclaiming the Promise of Public Education, and co-founder of an effort called a “Broader, Bolder approach to Education." He’s also a former classroom teacher in Providence and Oakland.
He says right now our policies aren’t getting it done. The NYU professor and big thinker sits down with us to talk about how to make our schools better.
Dr. Noguera is in Connecticut today to speak at a luncheon conversation for the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving...called “Who is responsible for children’s success.” It’s happening at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford...find out more at hfpg.org.
