Jonathan Kozol To Speak At Indiana University East

Fire in the Ashes

Jonathan Kozol, author of Amazing Grace, Ordinary Resurrections and Savage Inequalities, will be speaking at Indiana University East’s Vivian Auditorium at 7PM on April 3.

Kozol has been working with children in inner-city schools for nearly fifty years.  His new book, Fire In The Ashes, released in August 2012, tells the stories of young men and women who have come of age in one of the most destitute communities of the United States.  The urgent issues that confront our urban schools – a devastating race-gap, a pathological regime of obsessive testing and drilling students for exams instead of giving them the rich curriculum that excites a love of learning – are interwoven through these stories.

Tickets to Kozol’s lecture, “Children and Teachers Under Siege: Race, Poverty and the Public Schools,” are free and will be available through the IU East Bursars Office.
