PHRGE Institutes convene scholars, practitioners and advocates to explore a pressing social issue from a human rights perspective. This year’s Institute will analyze and evaluate the combination of initiatives known as “public education reform” from a human rights perspective. It will do so with an eye toward identifying policies that will help promote and support the human right to education (alongside all other human rights) for all U.S. school children. 


Thursday's program will feature a keynote address at 6:30 p.m. by Julian Vazquez Heilig, Ph.D., professor, education activist, and author of Cloaking Inequity, a blog which is consistently ranked one of Top 50 education blogs in the world by Teach100.


The keynote event is free and open to the public but requires registration is required. Contact Sonia Haerizadeh at phrge@neu.edu to register.
