Pedro Noguera, "Education and Civil Rights in the 21st Century"

Smith-Buonanno 106, 95 Cushing Street

Education is frequently described as the civil rights issue of the 21st century, particularly by politicians calling for policy changes and reform. However, the most important civil rights issue involving education in the 20th century, school segregation, remains largely unresolved, and despite the controversy it once generated, it is rarely mentioned as an important social issue that should be addressed today.

Pedro Noguera is the Peter L. Agnew Professor of Education at New York University. He is also the Ex   ecutive Director of the Metropolitan Center for Urban Education and the co-Director of the Institute for the Study of Globalization and Education in Metropolitan Settings (IGEMS).
