Garden City, NY - March 25, 2014 - Adelphi University is proud to announce that Pedro Noguera, Ph.D. will be speaking on “Challenging Racial Inequality in Our Schools” for the Ruth S.

Dr. Noguera has been a professor in the graduate schools of Harvard University and the University of California, Berkeley, and is the author of several books, including City Schools and the American Dream: Reclaiming the Promise of Public Education and Unfinished Business: Closing the Racial Achievement Gap in Our Schools.

A dynamic speaker, Dr. Noguera is one of America’s most important advocates for public education.
