Where Might the 2016 Election Year Take Us? Exploring the Implications of Political Framing for Future Education Legislation

Fri, April 8, 12:00 to 1:30pm, Convention Center, Floor: Level Two, Room 201

Session Type: Invited Speaker Session


Despite all of the attention to politics in 2016, education has received relatively little attention. With the passage of the new federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), state governments will have increased flexibility to implement policies that promote educational innovation and progress. In this session Pedro Noguera, John Jackson, and Judith Browne Dianis will engage in a lively discussion of the constraints and opportunities created by ESSA. They will also consider how the presidential candidates of both parties should be challenged to address education and the huge challenges created by increasing racial and class-based inequality.
