The idea that schools can have little influence on children coming from poor homes and neighborhoods is increasingly being challenged by the best available research evidence. Given stronger organizational cultures and more strategic investments in youth, schools can see better outcomes, even with current resource levels. With more resources, there is every reason to think they could do better still.
Come hear this exciting lecture by renowned scholarCharles Payne.
Charles Payne is the Frank P. Hixon Professor in the School of Social Service Administration at the University of Chicago.
