Pedro Noguera: Structural Racism and the Urban Geography of Education

This year’s widespread protests for racial justice have brought new attention the persistence and perniciousness of structural racism in America.

In a new article in Phi Delta Kappan Magazine, USC Rossier School of Education Dean Pedro Noguera traces the history of structural racism as it relates to urban schooling, and its myriad impacts on students of color in cities like Chicago, New Orleans and Los Angeles.

Noguera joins CPRE Executive Director Jonathan Supovitz to discuss the article, and the ways in which school leaders, teacher preparations programs, communities and even students themselves can work together to fight for change.
