In this week’s Just Talk, we share a dialogue between John Rogers and students from Alhambra High School. Following the shooting in Parkland, Florida and the national walkout on March 14th, students from Jose Sanchez’ U.S. Government class began researching issues surrounding gun violence in schools. The students decided to collectively state their concerns about gun violence, and suggestions for making schools safer, in the form of a public resolution.
In this week’s Just Talk, John Rogers sits down with Sandra Graham, a professor of education at UCLA where she holds the University of California Presidential Chair in Education and Diversity. Dr. Graham studies academic motivation and social development in children of color, particularly in school contexts that vary in racial and ethnic diversity.
In this week’s Just Talk, John Rogers sits down with UCLA Professor Sylvia Hurtado to talk about her efforts to invigorate democracy and learning through inter-group dialogue.
