Tired of hearing about the achievement gap? We've been looking at it all wrong. This provocative and poignant talk challenges the masses to think differently about the education of the urban child.
Key Words: Education Debt, Achievement Gap, Urban, Suburban, Desegregation
Kandice A. Sumner, M.Ed, is a doctoral student in Urban Education Policy and successful Boston Public School teacher. Going from being one of a few Blacks in her school to learning at a historically Black college to teaching in the underserved and predominately Black neighborhood of Dorchester, Kandice has spent a lifetime traversing the race, class and gender lines of Boston, Mass.
