Education Expert Pedro Noguera

Rochester, NY – Education expert Pedro Noguera talks with WXXI News Director Julie Philipp about the non-academic needs of children.

Noguera says one of the biggest failings of school reform initiatives nationwide is they ignore the non-academic needs of children such as health, nutrition, and housing. Dr. Noguera, a professor at NYU's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development, is speaking to local educators this week.
