United Way’s Community Breakfast Supports Local Children and Families

| June 5, 2019 | 0 Comments

United Way of San Diego County’s annual Community Breakfast brought together hundreds of business and government leaders, community partners, and school advocates to support moving students and families forward to a brighter future through education and family stability.

Attendees at the annual event heard from keynote speaker Pedro A. Noguera, an education expert and distinguished professor at the University of California, Los Angeles. The author of 13 books, a regular contributor to The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, and a frequent commentator for CNN, MSNBC and NPR, Noguera’s work focuses on a broad range of issues related to education and public policy. His current research examines how children’s social and economic status intersects with their performance in the classroom.

“We are thrilled to have Dr. Noguera join our ongoing discussion on the power of education to move children and families forward, and to share with us his groundbreaking views – challenging the way we all think about the community’s role in the educational success of our children,” said United Way of San Diego County President and CEO Nancy Sasaki.
