Our Featured Speaker

America is changing quickly, and in ways that place increasing pressure on its citizens to acquire higher levels of education. At the same time, America's education system remains stuck in a time when only a certain population of children was expected to achieve academically, while the rest could pursue other successful paths. The result of a changing economy and a stagnant way of teaching to a select group of students is a large portion of our population of youth alienated from learning, and therefore having limited chance of achieving the "American Dream". Hugo Lawton discusses the importance of inclusive, culturally-responsive pedagogy in promoting the success of all students and the health of our country economically and spiritually.
