Community leader and philanthropist Jane Batten talks with author David Kirp, ODU's Darden Lecture speaker, at a reception prior to his talk Wednesday night. The 2013 Darden Lecture was co-sponsored by the Batten Foundation, United Way of Hampton Roads, WHRO and the Hampton Roads Community Foundation. During his talk, Kirp shared findings from his latest book, "Improbable Scholars: The Rebirth of a Great American School System and a Strategy for American Education." In it, he tells the story of how New Jersey's Union City School District, which serves a largely immigrant population with a high unemployment rate and Spanish as the dominant language, ignored trendy reforms in favor of proven game-changers like quality pre-kindergarten education, principals who create an environment of academic success through students' behavior and attitude, and hands-on help for teachers.
