The Hornsby Lecture will feature Dr. Howard E. Fields III, who serves as the Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, and as an Adjunct Professor at the school. Dr. Field’s lecture will be delivered in-person at W&M’s School of Education and live-streamed via Zoom.

In celebration of W&M Education Week, the title of the talk is, “How to Achieve Educational Equity”. In the lecture, Dr. Fields will discuss his definition of what educational equity means. He will also present ideas and tools that will help aspiring, current, and retired educators with providing support to their students.

Dr. Fields has written a book on the subject entitled, “How to Achieve Educational Equity.” He’s also the co-founder of Black Males in Education St. Louis (BMESTL) and EduOpenings.com.

The School of Education will be hosting a reception with light hors d’eovures, before the lecture, from 5-6 p.m. During the reception, faculty and students from the School of Education will present their research posters that will discuss educational equity in a gallery walk.
