Event description

Description

The Office of Opportunity and Achievement Gaps Speaker Series (OAG Speaker Series) focuses on issues pertinent to and pressing for “urban education” and the sound instruction of students who have been historically marginalized. The goal of the series is to serve as a window through which we can engage Boston Public Schools’ diverse stakeholders, brand Boston as a school district dedicated to progressive change, and begin a historic stride towards true equity and the elimination of opportunity and achievement gaps.

Tim Wise, second speaker in the series, is the author of seven books, including his latest, Under the Affluence: Shaming the Poor, Praising the Rich and Sacrificing the Future of America. Named one of “25 Visionaries Who are Changing Your World,” by Utne Reader, Wise has contributed chapters or essays to over 25 additional books and his writings are taught in colleges and universities across the nation. His essays have appeared on Alternet, Salon, Huffington Post, Counterpunch, The Root, Black Commentator, BK Nation and Z Magazine among other popular, professional and scholarly journals.
