The field of education has no shortage of good ideas, yet, schooling today remains less able to meet the needs of students of color, and poor students, than almost anyone involved in the enterprise would like. From Small Schools to providing every child with a laptop, we have seen ideas come and go. Why do our innovations fail to create a positive press on equity?
Join us as Dr. Louis Gomez discusses possible causes and approaches to attend to failure to build successes for learners, especially those who are poor and historically underserved.
Q&A to follow.
