Join the Center for Urban Education for the fall 2017 edition of #CUEtalks when we welcome Dr. Tyrone Howard from UCLA. In this talk, Howard will address the increasing complexities in today’s schools contexts, and how issues of race, culture, and trauma remain salient. Focusing specifically on how schools often miss the mark with regard to engaging students in teaching and learning, Howard offers a complex and nuanced account of how today’s student populations require a more humanistic, race-conscious, and culturally caring approach to education.
A brief reception will follow the program.
