PennGSEā€™s Mid Career Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership presents a book talk with Jose Vilson (www.thejosevilson.com) on his ground breaking book This Is Not A Test. The event explores Mr. Vilson's perspectives as a Black Latino male classroom teacher who is also a leading voice in teacher leadership and the #EduColor movement. MCDPEL student Khalilah Harris (C11) leads the discussion as part of the Program's Student Leadership Challenge.
