UC Center Sacramento Wednesday Speaker Series

Speaker: Su Jin Jez, associate professor of public policy and administration, California State University, Sacramento, reveals that Teach for America alumni, when compared with similar individuals, were not statistically more likely to be engaged in civic or political activity, work in pro-social careers or hold politically idealistic views. Teach for America, however, positively impacts participants’ traits on civically important factors, such as unconscious racial tolerance, belief that poor children are able to compete with rich children and that the educational achievement gap is solvable.

Lunch will be served.
