The Moral Path: Five Steps Towards (real) Educational Equity in Connecticut

From Andy Ribner ’13:

Jacob Werblow, Ph.D., began his professional career as a 6th grade teacher of some of the most beautiful children enrolled in one of the largest, most segregated public schools in Los Angeles. Since then, he has been committed to social justice through working with youth from urban schools. He is a licensed teacher and administrator, and earned his Ph.D. from the University of Oregon in 2007. Inspired by the work of Dr. Barbara Clark, who studied aesthetic education at Harvard University, Jacob is deeply involved in teaching courses that use the arts to engage students in local middle schools.

The emphasis of Jacob’s research focuses on school equity and effectiveness, student success, and curriculum based measurement.

Jacob is an advisor to the CT Center for Nonviolence, a board member of CT NAME (National Association of Multicultural Educators), and a member of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). He rides his bicycle to work.
