The Corporatization of Education – Talk by Gordon Lafer

Does it matter if you’re taught by a person or an app?  Does it matter if schools are controlled by democratically-elected boards or by private corporations?  Do poor kids deserve the same quality education as rich?  University of Oregon professor and Economic Policy Institute researcher Gordon Lafer will talk about recent trends toward privatization, digitization and segregation of education — both in K-12 and higher education.
Wednesday, April 16th at 4:00 pm in Saunders 624. Light refreshments and pupus provided.
