How might we re-envision our school system to make it more just, equitable, and higher performing? Most approaches to school reform today tinker with the existing system, but what if it is the system itself that is the problem? At this special event, the nationally known authors of the recently published The Futures of School Reform will argue that reformers across the spectrum are not thinking big enough, and instead outline six pathways for remaking American schooling. Join us for a provocative and highly interactive discussion about the future of our schools!
