Update: The Paul Gorski lecture scheduled for tonight has been cancelled due to a family emergency. 

As part of its ongoing celebration of its 100th anniversary, the Bucknell University Department of Education will host a public lecture by Professor Paul Gorski of George Mason University on Thursday, Feb. 11, at 7 p.m. in Trout Auditorium.   

Prof. Gorski's talk is titled "The Role of Public Education in the Face of Rising Poverty." In it, he will explore whether public education in the United State is a threat to the existence of poverty or a reproducer of the conditions that sustain it. He will discuss the limits and potentials of public education and explore ways in which current trends in this field may actually be contributing to, rather than threatening, inequality.

A professor of integrative studies in George Mason's New Century College, Gorski recently led the design and development of the new social justice and human rights undergraduate and graduate programs at the school. The founder of EdChange and a board member of the International Association for Intercultural Education, he has published more than 50 articles and eight books focusing on topics like poverty and educational opportunity, racial equity and activist resiliency.
