Bay Area Regional Leadership Forum

Submitted By Claudia Medina

The Alameda County Office of Education and Monterey County Office of Education in partnership with the Santa Clara County Office of Education and the Alameda County Alliance for Arts Learning Leadership will host educational leaders in a dialogue about Making Systemic Change: Connecting student culture, classroom practice, and leadership with new performance based assessments that measure what matters in student achievement.

The 4th Annual Bay Area Regional Leadership Forum will feature Dr Pedro Noguera, professor of Teaching and Learning at New York University. Dr. Noguera is one of the nation's leading experts in urban education, education reform, diversity, and the achievement gap. From 1990 to 2000, he was a professor in Social and Cultural Studies at the Graduate School of Education and the Director of the Institute for the Study of Social Change at the UC Berkeley.

While at UC Berkeley, Dr. Noguera worked with urban youth, community service projects, policy development, designed course curriculum, and assisted administrative units with racial and ethnic diversity programs. His ground breaking work revealed the racial disparities that contribute to the current achievement gap.

Between 2000 and 2003, Noguera served as the Judith K. Dimon Professor of Communities and Schools at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Presently Dr. Noguera is a professor in the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development at New York University. He is also the Executive Director of the Metropolitan Center for Urban Education and the co-Director of the Institute for the study of Globalization and Education in Metropolitan Settings (IGEMS).

The Bay Area Leadership Forum provides a regular opportunity for district and county leaders to work collaboratively with other local and national leaders on how to transform public education to support success for all students. Participants also access professional development and technical assistance resources that connect student assets and interests to learning across the curriculum though arts integration. Dr. Noguera's return to the Bay Area is the catalyst for an urgent and lively conversation about educators that are integrating the arts and creative education strategies to engage the strengths and assets of all students.
