DESCRIPTION:
“If you despair that our public schools are beyond repair, read this book. If you despair that people of widely divergent views can no longer debate them without rancor, read this book. (If neither of these thoughts are bothering you, do a little homework and then read it!)”—Gov. Mitch Daniels, President, Purdue University

Dean of the USC Rossier School of Education Pedro A. Noguera and director of education policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute Frederick M. Hess, who tend to fall on opposing sides of the ideological aisle, candidly explore their differences in their new book, A Search for Common Ground: Conversations About the Toughest Questions in K-12 Education. In a candid conversation with Stefanie Sanford, Chief of Global Policy and External Relations at the College Board, Noguera, and Sanford will discuss where 21st-century schooling needs to go and how to foster the kind of public discourse that will get us there.

To participate in the Q&A, submit questions to Tracey.Schirra@aei.org or on Twitter with #ASearchForCommonGround by March 1.
 

Organized by the USC Rossier School of Education in partnership with the American Enterprise Institute and USC Visions and Voices: The Arts and Humanities Initiative.
