Combating Inequity in Education: A Critical Conversation about the Path toward Education Equity in America

Join Stanford President John Hennessy as he moderates an urgent discussion about pervasive inequity in the American education system with three of the nation’s most forward-looking education thought leaders.  Why is the achievement gap still so deep? What roles do poverty and race play in creating and sustaining that gap? And how do we address the root causes of inequity? 
Linda Darling-Hammond, professor and founder of the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education (SCOPE), and Sean Reardon, professor of poverty and inequality in education, will be joined by global teacher, entrepreneur and former hedge fund analyst Salman Kahn, to share their deep research and visionary perspectives on what we need to know, and how we should move forward to build a culture of equity and success. 
The event is open to all members of the campus community. Seating is limited.
