Educational equity in Arizona: A radical idea, or a necessary goal?
Dr. Angelina Castagno, Northern Arizona University, Associate Professor, Educational Foundations
Education is a hot topic in Arizona. Legislators, educators and citizens cannot agree on funding, curricula, or testing, to name a few, or on why Arizona consistently ranks at the bottom nationally when it comes to education. While these issues are fundamental, they lose sight of the most important issue, educating Arizona’s children. Are Arizona children receiving the education they need to live, work, raise families and be productive members of society? Do all Arizona children have access to an education, regardless of class, race or geography? Is educational equity a right or a privilege? Join us for a FRANK Talk about educating Arizona children.
