Noguera appears as a regular commentator on educational issues on several national media outlets, and his editorials on educational issues have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Dallas Morning News and Los Angeles Times.

Prior to being appointed Dean of the USC Rossier School of Education, Noguera served as a Distinguished Professor of Education at the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Speaking Topics
  • Creating Conditions for Academic Excellence: What it Takes to Leave No Child Behind

    In this talk, America's leading expert on public education tackles the growing issue of the academic achievement gap in American schools, giving examples of failed policy strategies as well as successful ones to break down why our education system is failing, and how we can fix it. To build a school system where no child is left behind, we must focus on creating schools where a child's race or social class is no longer a predictor for their performance. Why is the growing achievement gap between the best schools and the worst ones a glaring societal problem? What success stories can we turn to as examples of a better system? And, most importantly, is a massive reshaping of our public schools even possible? With infectious enthusiasm and passion, Noguera shares his vision for the school system of the future, and explains why we must demand it for today.

  • Challenging Racial Inequality in Our Schools

    As a leading urban sociologist, Noguera examines how schools are influenced by social and economic conditions in the urban environment. What are the challenges they face in providing safe, academically rewarding environments? What is the state of race relations, racial inequality? What is the role of diversity? What is the impact of violence, parents, and school vouchers? What factors promote student achievement? Which detract from it? What is the impact of immigration and migration? A realistic, hopeful speaker, Noguera shows you the hurdles we face in providing equal education to all -• and then unveils the solutions that are already working to overcome them.
