About This Event

Several large urban school systems have initiated major reforms. There are important lessons to learn from their successes and challenges. Over the last 12 years New York City Public Schools has implemented an ambitious set of education initiatives, which the Center for American Progress is studying. Other major urban systems like Houston have also undertaken major changes. Their bold plans have yielded many successes and some shortcomings that provide takeaways for other urban districts.

Please join the Center for American Progress for a discussion about the importance of bold and coherent plans for urban district reform that improve student achievement.
