Plan to join us for an engaging book club conversation about the 2018 book Discrimination in Elite Public Schools; Investigating Buffalo, by Gary Orfield and Jennifer B. Ayscue, Eds., published by Teachers College Press.

Sponsored by the School of Education and Human Services and The Center for Urban Education (CUE), Dean Jeffrey Lindauer, PhD, has graciously agreed to purchase copies of the book for interested participants.

If you are interested, please RSVP to Fernanda Astiz, PhD, professor of teacher education, at or Lorrei DiCamillo, EdD, at, by September 12 so an accurate number of books can be ordered.

The plan is to have two discussion sessions in November; one on a Friday afternoon to accommodate participants’ schedules. Tentative dates are November 16 and/or November 30. Those interested are welcome to attend one or both discussion sessions. (Treats will be served!) A follow-up panel discussion with key Buffalo district leaders and community members will be organized in the spring 2019 semester.
