The issues and challenges that impact urban education aren’t particular to the United States, says Dr. Chance W. Lewis, the Carol Grotnes Belk Distinguished Professor of Urban Education at UNC Charlotte. At the three-day international conference that has brought more than 400 scholars and practitioners to this island from corners around the globe, Lewis is cautioning participants to not merely dwell on the problems that beset urban schools, but to focus instead on finding creative solutions and outcomes for the future.

Dr. Lewis spoke with "Diverse Issues in Higher Education" to discuss the conference and his research into urban education issues.
