Education Panel Explores Barriers to Learning, Friday, Nov. 14

Students bring with them myriad challenges as they enter the classroom. How do these realities frame children’s learning experiences and opportunities? What specific efforts and policies should be implemented to help children overcome obstacles to achievement? Organized by New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development and featuring a panel of education experts, the discussion stimulates a conversation among researchers, policymakers, and practitioners about recent advances in our understanding of out-of-classroom factors that limit academic achievement.

The talk will be held at NYU in Lipton Hall in the D’Agostino Hall, 110 West Third Street (between Sullivan and MacDougal Sts.) on Fri., Nov. 14 from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. [Subways: A, B, C, D, E, F, V (West 4th Street); R, W (8th Street); 6 (Astor Place)]

Reporters interested in attending the event are asked to phone Tim Farrell in the Office of Public Affairs at 212.998.6797 or email at 500
