Fire In The Ashes Keeping Hope Alive in Kids and Teachers as We Battle Back Against the Corporate Agenda with Jonathan Kozol

June 29, 2012

8 PM Eastern Daylight Time [EDT}

Please Join Us!

Please Join Us, Jonathan Kozol, and Guest Moderator, Anthony Cody for an all-day Fundraiser and evening Webinar.

Educator, Writer, and Activist Jonathan Kozol will offer his thoughts on The Fire In The Ashes and how we Keep Hope Alive in Kids and Teachers as We Battle Back Against the Corporate Agenda. He will focus on…

(1) The damage done to children by the testing mania.

(2) The damage done to the morale of teachers by a regiment of punitive accountability that judges them by the test scores of their students and gives them no reward for creativity or for awakening the curiosity, originality, and critical capacities of children.

(3) The shameful inequality between rich schools and poor, and the virtually total segregation of black and Hispanic children, which sends a message to those kids that they are outcasts and have little value in the eyes of our society.

Jonathan Kozol

Jonathan Kozol – Esteemed Educator, Writer, Activist
“If you grow up in the South Bronx today or in south-central Los Angeles or Pittsburgh or Philadelphia, you quickly come to understand that you have been set apart and that there’s no will in this society to bring you back into the mainstream. The kids have eyes and they can see, and they have ears and they can hear. Kids notice that no politicians talk about this. Nobody says we’re going to make them less separate and more equal. Nobody says that.”

In 1964 Jonathan Kozol left his comfortable surroundings in Cambridge, Massachusetts to begin work as a teacher in low-income, predominately black Roxbury, first in a freedom school and later in a public elementary school. He grew up in Newton, was educated at Harvard and a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford.
His first published nonfiction, Death at an Early Age: The Destruction of the Hearts and Minds of Negro Children in the Boston Public Schools (1967) winner of the National Book Award, drew upon his experiences as a fourth-grade teacher. The practice of immersing himself in the lives of his subjects became the pattern for his subsequent searing studies of the injustices a wealthy society visits upon its most vulnerable members.
