Build capacity in schools

I highly recommend finding an hour and watching this video (Thanks to @KenMLibby for sharing it). In it, Dr. Pedro Noguera shares some examples of effective ways we could change schools and speaks out against the ineffective reforms that have been enacted in the US for decades.

Note that much of what Dr. Noguera suggests could be implemented in the high poverty schools in Canada just as easily as the US. I don’t think we have as much difficulty with highly scripted instruction here in Canada, thankfully, but we do have a huge child poverty problem, and it behoves us to look at ways we can help our children as much as we can.

  • Thank you for recommending this video! I normally have a very short attention span for live speakers, let alone videos of live speakers, but this was incredible. I will be checking out whatever I can find of Dr. Noguero’s work. Thank you for sharing!
