Public event to address childhood poverty and education outcomes March 23 in Detroit

March 10, 2017

WHAT

Dr. Charles Payne, an expert in urban education and school reform, social inequality, social change and modern African American history, will deliver a public lecture titled "The Limits of Schooling, The Power of Poverty," as part of the American Educational Research Association's Centennial Lecture Series. The event is free, open to the public, and includes an informal buffet reception.

Payne, the Frank P. Hixon Professor in the School of Social Service Administration at the University of Chicago, will explore research evidence challenging the persistent idea that schools can have little influence on children coming from poor homes and neighborhoods. Given stronger organizational cultures and more strategic investments in youth, schools can see better outcomes, even at current resource levels.

Payne's 20-minute-long talk will be followed by a discussion moderated by Erin Einhorn, senior correspondent at Chalkbeat Detroit. During the discussion, several policy experts will comment on Payne's talk and join him in fielding questions from the audience.

AERA's Centennial Lecture Series is a series of six education research lectures held across the country as part of the association's centennial celebration.

Dispatch 6: Strange Times
Covid has disrupted the most basic routines of our days and nights. But in the middle of a conversation about how to fight the virus, we find a place impervious to the stalled plans and frenetic demands of the outside world. It's a very different kind of front line, where urgent work means moving slow, and time is marked out in tiny pre-planned steps. Then, on a walk through the woods, we consider how the tempo of our lives affects our minds and discover how the beats of biology shape our bodies.
