What happens to public education when our society no longer cares about the common good? Join Noam Chomsky and Jonathan Kozol, both long-time activists for social justice, for a conversation about education, inequality, and the decline of the “public good.”
In America today, the school experience is blatantly unequal and our schools are more segregated than they have been since 1968. What does this mean for the future of our students and socially just society? Chomsky and Kozol will examine the current decline and where we go from here.
This virtual University of Arizona event is presented by the College of Education’s Education Policy Center and the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. Registration is required.
Noam Chomsky is a linguistics laureate professor and the Agnese Nelms Haury Chair at the University of Arizona. Considered the founder of modern linguistics, Chomsky is one of the most influential public intellectuals in the world. Jonathan Kozol, author of many books including “Savage Inequalities: Children in America’s Schools,” remains one of the nation’s most outspoken advocates for equality and racial justice in our nation’s schools. The event is moderated by Cindy Cruz, associate professor in the Teaching, Learning and Sociocultural Studies Department in the College of Education.
