You Are Invited and Live Webcast: Charting a Path in U.S. Education Reform

The Program on America and the Global Economy (PAGE) Presents:

Charting a Path in U.S. Education Reform

 Wednesday, May 16, 2012

9:00 – 11:00 a.m.

Joseph and Claire Flom Auditorium, 6th Floor, Woodrow Wilson Center


 Paul G. Vallas, Superintendent, Bridgeport, Connecticut; Former Superintendent, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Recovery School District (LA); and Distinguished Scholar, Woodrow Wilson Center

Kenneth Wong, The Walter and Leonore Annenberg Professor in Education Policy, Brown University


 Kent Hughes, Director, Program on America and the Global Economy, Woodrow Wilson Center


 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 other parts of Louisiana, and currently, Bridgeport, Connecticut.  He will be joined by Dr. Kenneth Wong, a long-time collaborator on education policy.
