Behind & Beyond the Debate: A Public Speaker Series On Education In Newark

The Institute on Ethnicity, Culture, and the Modern Experience at Rutgers University-Newark extends a public invitation to our 2011-2012 public speaker series on education and schooling in Newark and beyond.  This year-long event will provide a venue for the community of Newark to engage in interdisciplinary scholarship that explores the complexity of education and schooling in our democratic and diverse society as a way to further public understandings of proposed school reform measures for Newark schools.
