(DC) Hard Lessons in Education Reform
May 3, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
The past quarter century of school reform has been marked by triumphs, setbacks, and heated debate. Reformers have continually tried new ideas to transform schooling, from sophisticated technologies to dynamic funding models and everything in between. Many have had limited success, but none have truly revolutionized K–12 education. Given the opportunities and challenges facing the next generation of reformers, what are the lessons, strategies, and advice that can help them succeed?
Join AEI for a candid conversation with a dozen reformers who have seen it all. Celebrating the release of Frederick Hess’ new book, “Letters to a Young Education Reformer” (Harvard Education Press, April 2017), this conversation seeks to brighten the future of school reform by reflecting honestly on its past.
