The U.S. is undergoing a fundamental transformation. The baby-boom generation is retiring while the fastest growing segments of our future workforce are the lowest achieving academically. Compared to Americans, students in many other nations are achieving higher scores and more years of schooling.
Dr. Ronald F. Ferguson is a Cleveland native who attended John F. Kennedy High School. His research over more than three decades has focused on reducing economic and
educational disparities. His most recent book “Toward Excellence with Equity: An emerging vision for closing the achievement gap,” was published by Harvard Education Press in 2008.
Ferguson will argue that the nation is in the early phases of a national social movement to improve educational outcomes for students from all racial, ethnic and social class backgrounds during a discussion titled “Educational Excellence with Equity: A Social Movement for the 21st century” at the City Club in the City forum on Thursday, November 3, from 1 to 3 p.m. at Plymouth Church, 2860 Coventry Road, Shaker Heights, Ohio, 44120. Tickets to this event are free but reservations are required. Call (216) 621-0082 or visit www.cityclub.org. Books for sale courtesy of A Cultural Exchange.
