Event Details

Film screening and panel discussion of Unequal Education: Failing Our Children. Panel discussion moderated by Farai Chideya. The event will feature Rudy Crew, Deborah Meier, David Jones, and Michael Rebell.

The event will begin at 6pm with a reception and book launch of Schooling for Resilience (Fergus, Noguera, & Martin, 2014). 

Description of Unequal Education: Failing Our Children: A year in the life of two seventh graders reveals the stark contrast in resources and opportunities offered by each of their schools. Located in the same Bronx school district only a few miles apart, they represent two distinct neighborhoods that are socially and economically worlds apart – the middle class Riverdale and the struggling community of South Fordham. Unequal Education bears witness to the equity gap in New York City’s school system – a tragedy of national proportion. Created by New York City youth producers at the Educational Video Center (www.evc.org), this acclaimed documentary premiered nationally in 1992 on the PBS series, “Listening to America with Bill Moyers.”
