Charting a Path in U.S. Education Reform
With the recession eroding school budgets, educators today are being forced to do more with less. Leading education reformer Paul Vallas and Kenneth Wong of Brown University discuss practical, tested, and cost-effective solutions to improve America’s K-12 schools.
Even in a tough economy with various financial constraints Paul Vallas highlights the possibility of success without throwing money at new experiments but rather practicing frugality and doing more with less. Vallas will draw lessons from his extensive career of leading education reform in urban America—Chicago, Philadelphia, the Recovery School District, which includes New Orleans, and currently, Bridgeport, Connecticut. He will be joined by Dr. Kenneth Wong, a long-time collaborator on education policy.
