Dr. Noguera's Keynote, "Asking the Right Questions to Advance Equity in Schools" - UCLA Professor of Education Pedro A. Noguera closed out the 2018 Summit with a keynote addressing transformational change in schools and communities to counter the effects of inequality and poverty. To researchers, policymakers, and education leaders, he suggested engaging the schools that need the most help, asking the right questions to understand local realities, and learning from what's working in order to replicate success. 

"We need to focus on the environment, the conditions for learning and ask, 'Have we created the right conditions, conditions for collaboration, conditions that are safe, conditions where it's okay to ask questions?'"
