Headshot of Donaldo Macedo Donaldo Macedo is the founder and former chair of the Applied Linguistics Master of Arts Program at the University of Massachusetts Boston. Macedo has been a central figure in the field of critical pedagogy for more than 20 years.

About the Series


The Office of Opportunity and Achievement Gaps Speaker Series (OAG Speaker Series) focuses on issues pertinent to and pressing for "urban education" and the sound instruction of students who have been historically marginalized. The goal of the series is to serve as a window through which we can engage Boston Public Schools' diverse stakeholders, brand Boston as a school district dedicated to progressive change, and begin a historic stride towards true equity and the elimination of opportunity and achievement gaps.
