Despite the controversy they generated in the 20th Century, school segregation and educational inequality remain largely unresolved social issues. Noguera shares why these topics are not a part of educational reforms today, the costs of ignoring these issues in the U.S., and the real possibilities for change and progress that still exist.
Noguera’s research focuses on the ways in which schools are influenced by social and economic conditions, and the factors that obstruct and promote student achievement. He appears as a regular commentator on education issues and other topics on CNN, MSNBC, National Public Radio, and other national news outlets. A prolific author, Noguera’s most recent publication is Schooling for Resilience, which he co-authored with Eddie Fergus and Margary Martin.
