Please join Mills College School of Education's Center for Urban Schools and Partnerships and the National Equity Project for a talk by renowned educator and author Dr. Gloria Ladson-Billings. The words "achievement gap" are on everyone's lips‐‐teachers, administrators, politicians, policymakers, parents, and the community. However, perhaps what we are experiencing in our nationwide schools is not an achievement gap but an educational debt. In this discussion, Dr. Ladson‐Billings examines how the characterization of students and their families can lead to continued deficit thinking, and keeps us trapped in a paradigm about what students cannot do, rather than what their personal and cultural strengths allow them to do.
