Nationally-recognized Distinguished Professor in the Department of Education at the University of California, Irvine, Dr. Greg J. Duncan, will speak to the Baton Rouge community at a Distinguished Speaker Series session hosted by Academic Distinction Fund (ADF).

Dr. Duncan's research shows income inequality has increased and so too has the gap between attainments of children growing up in poor families and those growing up in wealthy families. Duncan will present promising policy responses to include early direct investments in children, proven school reforms and income supports for low-income working families.

The event is free and open to the public.

The program check-in is from 4:00 to 4:30 p.m. and the presentation will be from 4:30 – 6:00 p.m. Pre-registration is recommended.

ADF is a major collaborator among schools, businesses, and the community and acts as a catalyst for private sector leadership in advancing public education in East Baton Rouge Public School System (EBRPSS).
