David Leonhardt, New York Times Op-Ed columnist, talks with Geoffrey Canada, president of the Harlem Children’s Zone, about educational inequality in America, bridging the digital divide and helping children succeed.

Featured in the critically acclaimed documentary “Waiting for ‘Superman,’” Canada has earned worldwide renown as a passionate advocate for education reform. Under his leadership, the Harlem Children’s Zone — a 97-block network of academic, social service and community-building programs that seeks to break the cycle of poverty and eliminate the achievement gap for 14,000 children -— has revitalized central Harlem and become a model for struggling communities nationwide.

Don’t miss this thought-provoking conversation with the charismatic educator who rose from poverty in the South Bronx and whose innovative cradle-through-college approach to boosting academic achievement has been called “the Harlem Miracle.”
