Pedro Noguera to Speak at AACTE Annual Meeting
Be inspired at the AACTE 68th Annual Meeting by Pedro Noguera, one of the nation’s most important voices on the state of education today. Noguera will speak at the Welcoming Session, to be held Tuesday, February 23, 2016 at The Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.
An expert on school reform, diversity, and the achievement gap, Noguera is a powerful, articulate, and far-reaching advocate for a strong and vibrant public education system. He is Distinguished Professor of Education in the Graduate School of Education and Information Sciences at the University of California Los Angeles. Previously, he served as Peter I. Agnew Professor of Education at New York University and as executive director of the Metropolitan Center for Research on Equity and the Transformation of Schools.
As one of America’s leading urban sociologists, he focuses on the ways in which schools are influenced by social and economic conditions in the urban environment. Thoughtful, provocative, and always on the cutting edge, Noguera draws from his considerable body of work to connect with diverse audiences, from policy makers to administrators, teachers, parents, and students. He has published more than 150 articles, monographs, and reports, and his work has appeared in several major research journals.
Now is your chance to hear from Noguera (and other inspiring speakers to be announced soon!) and get motivated with fresh perspectives on how to effect positive change in the American educational landscape.
We can’t wait for you to BE THERE!
