Please join us for a conversation with Dr. Manuel González Canché, Associate Professor in Penn's GSE Higher Education Division. Dr. González Canché will share his recent investigations into Geographical bias in standardized testing, or how space and place play a role in test performance.
Having been a low-income and first-generation college student, Dr. González Canché is particularly interested in understanding the structural factors that influence minority and at-risk students’ likelihood of educational and occupational success. Through his research, his goal is to identify plans of action capable of closing social and economic gaps resulting from students’ reduced access to financial, academic, and social resources.
