Creating Common Good 3: Educational Inequality with Nicole Baker Fulgham

Today we launch the third Creating Common Good course in partnership with Trinity Institute. In Creating Common Good 3: Educational Inequality, Nicole Baker Fulgham provides a truly engaging, challenging, and inspiring analysis of our education system, both how it’s failing and how we as Christians are called to help.

Using her years of experience in education and in educational reform, along with her inspiring passion for helping young people, Nicole explores the “two system” paradigm of American education, how expectations and resources are unequally allocated along economic and social divides, and how change can occur. Education is the pathway out of poverty; it also helps each child discover his or her God-given purpose.

This course has much to offer all of us who call ourselves Christian and thus bear a responsibility to those in need, but especially those involved in bringing up and educating youth, those interested in economic reform, and in social justice. Click here to register or for more information.

Nicole Baker Fulgham is the founder and president of The Expectations Project, a non-profit organization that develops & mobilizes faith-motivated advocates who help close the academic achievement gap in public schools. She is the author of Educating All God’s Children: What Christians Can – and Should – Do to Improve Public Education for Low-Income Kids (Brazos Press, April 2013).
