Addressing Educational Injustices
This interactive lecture explores the present school reform discourse and education policy landscape. Dr. Vasquez Heilig discusses what is prompting educators, students, parents, and citizens alike to question the ways in which we hold public schools accountable for student learning and performance.
NKU provides this context:
Too many of today’s students, particularly those in impoverished neighborhoods, are not receiving the educational opportunities they need and deserve. These educational injustices, coupled with the top-down nature of school reform in many communities is prompting educators, students, parents, and citizens alike to question the ways in which we hold public schools accountable for student learning and performance.
Given national trends toward increased support for testing and standardization, policies incentivizing the expansion of school vouchers and charters, assessment of students and teachers linked to test scores, and a federal role in education of historic proportions, this interactive lecture delved into the present school reform discourse and education policy landscape.
Suggested strategies for integrating academic scholarship and reform efforts via social media and other alliances to improve student achievement and school success via community-based reform were presented.

Thanks, Dr. Heilig, for your service against the bogus reform education movement, which is nothing but a privatization movement. We appreciate your efforts to point out the truth.
