      How is K-12 public education shaping the human experience and helping students understand humanity's challenges? Today's problems demand a solid education in fundamentals as well as new approaches.

      “Yale Alumni Educators in The Public School Classroom: A Conversation” invites you to join the discussion with 5 Yale College graduates who live on the front lines of education — dedicated to enriching young lives with innovative and creative practices that extend beyond lesson plans. Representing different US locations and fields of study, these Yalies have shown that achievement is possible in all communities, and they can speak to their efforts to ensure equitable access for all. They will share their experiences teaching before and during the pandemic, including their aspirations for US education moving forward.

A participant in the definitive exhibition of British conceptual art, "The New Art," at the Hayward Gallery, London, in 1972, his best-known works include "An oak tree" (1973), in which he claimed to have turned a glass of water into an oak tree; his large-scale black-and-white wall drawings; and his intensely colored paintings, installations, and commissions of everyday objects. Over the course of his career, Craig-Martin has had numerous exhibitions at galleries and museums across the world, including the Centre Pompidou, Paris; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the Kunstvereins in Dusseldorf, Stuttgart, and Hannover. In 1996, he represented Britain in the 23rd São Paulo International Biennial. He was an influential teacher at Goldsmiths College, London, as well as a Tate Trustee from 1989 through 1999. Awarded a commander of the Order of the British Empire in 2000, Craig-Martin was elected a Royal Academician in 2006, and knighted in 2016 for his services to art.

      Add to Calendar 2021-04-20T20:00:00 2021-04-20T20:00:00 America/New_York Panel on Poverty in America Today After two decades of groundbreaking research on American poverty, Kathryn Edin noticed something she hadn’t seen before — households surviving on virtually no cash income. Edin teamed with Luke Shaefer, an expert on surveys of the incomes of the poor. The two made a surprising discovery: the number of American families living on $2.00 per person, per day, has skyrocketed to one and a half million American households, including about three million children. Moderated by Marie Kelly, Yale ’74 M.D., Yale Club of Fort Worth Panelists: Kathryn Edin, PhD, William Church Osborn Professor of Sociology and Public Affairs at Princeton University and co-author of $2 a Day: The Art of Living on Virtually Nothing in America. H. Luke Shaefer, PhD, Hermann and Amalie Kohn Professor of Social Justice and Social Policy at University of Michigan and co-author of $2 a Day: The Art of Living on Virtually Nothing in America. Kathryn Arnold, CEO, Pathfinders (Fort Worth). Pathfinders was established to empower individuals and families to find their path from poverty to self-sufficiency.
