Closing the Achievement Gap:
The second 2015 Education Forum follow-up program
Thank you for attending our first follow-up program to the 2015 Education Forum! We continued the conversation about liberal education—what it is and how to provide it to every child. The previous first session was called, “Practical” Education vs. “Liberal” Education: the Tension between W. E. B. DuBois’ “Talented Tenth” and Booker T. Washington’s “Industrial Education.” (You may download pdfs of the essays that were the focus of this first discussion.)
Our second 2015 Education Forum Follow-up program is “Closing the Achievement Gap.” Scheduled guest panelists include three principals and three of their teachers on a panel to discuss what this is and how they address the issue. It will be an informative, lively discussion, no doubt.
Thursday, January 7, 6:30 to 8:00 pm; wine and cheese reception at 6:00 pm.
