Event description

Description

Enjoy free lunch and a talk by Jack Schneider, who teaches in the education department at College of the Holy Cross and directs the Massachusetts Consortium for Innovative Education Assessment. Professor Schneider will share his recent research on how perceptions of school quality -- which are often based on tools like state report cards or online ratings -- drive people to particular neighborhoods. The result is a self-fulfillng prophecy, in which schools perceive to be "bad" end up being harmed. The talk will begin at 12:30 and last until approximately 1:15pm, with audience Q&A to follow.

Registration free but required - spaces are limited.

This event is part of #edjustice, a two week series of events on justice & injustice in the American education system, sponsored by the Martin Richard Institute for Social Justice at Bridgewater State University.
