While race is not often discussed in the dominant discourses about how to improve urban schools, Professor Charles M. Payne—author of So Much Reform, So Little Change and Teach Freedom: The African American Tradition of Education for Liberation—will argue that racial dynamics shape urban schools and school systems in multiple ways. He will also explain why race should not always be defined as a problem. Taking race more fully into account may allow us to shape more powerful educational practice.
