"The Hidden Power of Character" - A Lecture With Education Reform Advocate Paul Tough

DATE
Mon, Mar 11, 2013
TIME
6:00pm - 7:00pm

Bestselling author Paul Tough will lead a discussion about education, child development, poverty, politics, and "The Hidden Power of Character." As one of the country’s leading voices on the topics of education reform and social innovation, Tough challenges our culture’s belief that intelligence, endlessly measured by test scores, is the sole indicator of value in our education system. Tough’s message carries special resonance in New Orleans, which has taken center stage in the education reform movement since Katrina. Free and open to the public, with a reception, book-signing, and community education resource fair to follow. Sponsored by the Newcomb-Tulane College Office of Cocurricular Programs, the NewDay Speaker Series, the Office of Academic Affairs, and the Center for Public Service at Tulane University.
