This talk will help explain our current political divisions by examining how Americans’ conception of opportunity has changed over time. Shelton argues that American policymakers in the recent past have asked public education to do too much, and we have to ensure that every American, no matter their level of education, has a guarantee of economic security.
Jon Shelton is associate professor and chair of Democracy and Justice Studies. He is the author of the prize-winning book Teacher Strike! Public Education and the Making of a New American Political Order and a recent postdoctoral fellow of the National Academy of Education.
