What is the difference between an elementary school education in Cape Town and New York City? Join us for a fascinating conversation with two education pioneers—Ian Rowe, CEO of Public Prep, and Jacob Lief, founder of the Ubuntu Education Fund in South Africa—and moderator, acclaimed author, and NPR education correspondent Anya Kamenetz, as we discuss how to unlock the potential inside all children, no matter where they live or what their economic circumstances, and how to break the cycle of inequality that dominates the lives of millions of children not only in the third world, but right here in New York City.
