Leona Tyler Lecture: Dr. Hirokazu Yoshikawa
Please join us October 14th, from 2:30-4 pm, in the Ford Lecture Hall of the Schnitzer, for Dr. Hirokazu Yoshikawa’s presentation entitled, “Improving the Quality of Early Childhood Education in the Context of
the UN Sustainable Development Goals.” This presentation takes place on the same day as the Activist Methods workshop by Cherríe Moraga on Civil Rights & Civil Liberties, but there is no overlap in these two
Dr. Yoshikawa is the Courtney Sale Ross Professor of Globalization and Education and University Professor at New York University Steinhardt. His presentation will describe recent developments and data concerning
quality in Early Childhood Education and its improvement in the United States and internationally, with a focus on the global policy context, quality improvement in studies from Boston and Santiago de Chile, and a
new global initiative to assess learning and quality in low- and middle-income countries. Reception to follow.
Dr. Yoshikawa has also engaged in scholarship focused on undocumented children in the U.S. and the adverse consequences of U.S. immigration policies.
For those of you less familiar with his work, his expertise is in public policies and programs related to immigration, early childhood, and poverty reduction on children’s development in global contexts. His work is relevant to many in CLLAS. Here is a link to his full bio: http://steinhardt.nyu.edu/faculty/Hirokazu_Yoshikawa
