We're talking about race, class, and education. On Friday, the Washington Post published a piece by my community discussion partner, Dr. Natalie Hopkinson, entitled "Organic Chemistry: Two Tracks of Schooling Raise Questions About Class, Race and Community." This episode of Know-It-All continues the conversation.

My guest, Dr. Paul C. Gorski, is a professor of education and founder of the undergraduate Social Justice program at George Mason University. He is also the founder of EdChange, a non-profit organization that helps celebrate diversity and promote educational equity. Dr. Gorski will talk to us about the danger of the myth that all poor people are of one culture and thus hold the same values.


Know-It-All Host Allison R. Brown is a civil rights attorney and owner of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), providing educational equity plans for schools and helping non-profit organizations to promote educational equity.
