Annual Brown Lecture in Education Research to be streamed live

October 08, 2018

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Center for Education and Civil Rights (CECR) will be host for a livestream viewing of the 15th annual American Educational Research Association (AERA) Brown Lecture in Education Research at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, in 123 Chambers Building on the University Park campus. A discussion will follow the lecture.

This year's speaker, H. Richard Milner IV, will speak on "Disrupting Punitive Practices and Policies: Rac(e)ing Back to Teaching, Teacher Preparation and Brown."

The Brown Lecture is designed to feature the important role of research in advancing understanding of equality and equity in education, and commemorate the anniversary of the Brown vs. Board of Education U.S. Supreme Court decision.

Milner is the Cornelius Vanderbilt Endowed Chair of Education and professor of education in the Department of Teaching and Learning at Peabody College of Vanderbilt University. He examines practices and policies at all levels that are implicitly or overtly designed to punish rather than support academic, social, cultural, and psychological development of black, brown and low­‐income students.

Snacks and refreshments will be provided. Learn about the Brown Lecture and Milner by visiting http://bit.ly/brown-lecture or following the conversation at #AERABrownLecture.
