A talk about men of color in education

Studies have shown that the success of children of color depends on the presence of high-achieving teachers of color, especially males. It's no secret or surprise that the public school system is lacking in recruiting or retaining this group, experts say.

A panel of education leaders, including schools chief Arlene Ackerman, will discuss what methods that should work in teaching men of color. And what's more, what drives high-achieving men of color to teach?

The event begins at 7p.m., Tuesday, January 25, at the Irvine Auditorium at the University of Pennsylvania, 34th and Spruce.
