Schooling and Education

"I fear that even if we make good schools available to everybody, we would not have solved the problem." The reason? Education is more than schooling.
Dr. Edmund Gordon, Director of the Institute for Urban and Minority Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, discusses the difference between schooling and education.
Dr. Edmund Gordon is one of the nation's foremost scholars on education and the Achievement Gap and has been a strong proponent of "supplementary education," the kind of education that a child receives outside of school, as the necessary link in bridging the Achievement Gap.
