Enjoy a free buffet dinner and a talk by Linda Nathan, who was the Founding Headmaster of Boston Arts Academy, Boston’s first public high school for the visual and performing arts. In her recent book, she uses the stories of her students to “confront the myth that children who grow up in poverty can overcome inequity and every other daunting obstacle they face if they just ‘believe.’” (from a review by Jonathan Kozol). She will discuss how educators can better serve all students, increase college retention rates, and develop alternatives to college that don’t disadvantage students on the basis of race or income.

Dr. Nathan will speak from approximately 5:30-6:30 p.m., with audience Q&A and book signing to follow. The first 20 people to arrive will receive a free copy of When Grit Isn't Enough! This event is free and open to the public, but because spaces are limited, registration is required at http://bit.ly/edjustice314.

This is the third event in #edjustice, a two-week series of events on justice & injustice in the American education system, sponsored by the Martin Richard Institute for Social Justice at Bridgewater State University.
