National scholar shares education views at NC State

National Book Award-winning writer and education scholar Jonathan Kozol talked about resegregation, inequity, and teaching the poorest children at North Carolina State University last week.

He spoke at the The Education Action Summit, Disrupting Poverty: Initiating Collective Impact in Education held by NC State’s College of Education. With a mix of fury and humor, he described his early days as a teacher in a school filled with low-income students, and his work over the years studying and trying to transform education.

Kozol is the author of numerous books, including

“Savage Inequalities: Children in America’s Schools”

“The Shame of the Nation: The Restoration of Apartheid Schooling in America”

“Fire in the Ashes: Twenty-Five Years Among the Poorest Children in America”
