On January 24, 2009, I had the honor of sitting down for a few minutes with Dr. Cornel West, one of the world's prominent African-American Studies scholars to discuss social change in schools in the era of NCLB and Barack Obama. Click on the title to see the interview and listen to his thoughts on the nature of success in school, where the next social movement will come from and why the achievement gap may not be as significant as we think. My deepest gratitude to David Usui and Devin Young of The Flux Productions as well as The Open Center, New York City for making this happen. Also, great thanks to Bradley Eide for the rights to the photograph.
