OEA Symposium

OEA Symposium on Transformation in Public Education

2014 OEA Symposium 
Bridging Opportunity and Achievement — Working Together to Break the Cycle of Poverty

Poverty has a profound influence on student achievement. How do we work together across school communities to meet the learning needs of students in poverty, and empower each and every student to achieve and be ready for a world beyond their borders? The 2014 OEA Symposium, held March 24, 2014, featured Pedro Noguera, educator and Professor of Education at New York Univeristy, and Nancy Golden, educator and Oregon's Chief Education Officer. 

New! Watch videos from the 2014 OEA Symposium. Due to length, the 2014 Symposium has been divided into three videos, which can be viewed in the segments below.
