Pick: Poverty, Inequality and Schooling

[LECTURE-FORUM] Friday, April 5

Conservatives tell us that school funding and wealth have nothing to do with educational achievement, so why are the worst schools in the poorest neighborhoods? Author and researcher David C. Berliner, regents’ professor emeritus at Arizona State University, will examine the “too powerful to ignore” relationship of poverty and education at a morning talk and afternoon forum. 10 a.m. (lecture), 1 p.m. (forum); UNLV Science and Engineering Building Auditorium, 895-3607, free.
