One of the leading thinkers on race, poverty, and equity in schooling, Professor Richard Milner argues that honest discourse about race and racism is essential for teaching practices that are adequate for all students.

His presentation will examine pervasive raced structural and social policies that shape educators’ mindsets, discuss how teachers can support instructional practices that address race and poverty in meaningful ways, and share what “successful” schools and districts do to meet the needs of underserved students.

The conference is free of charge, and no advance registration is necessary.

Richard Milner IV is the Helen Faison Endowed Chair of Urban Education, Professor of Education, Professor of Social Work (by courtesy), Professor of Sociology (by courtesy) and Professor of Africana Studies (by courtesy) as well as Director of the Center for Urban Education at the University of Pittsburgh.
