About the Lecture

There is no question that America’s schools need dramatic reform. The consequences of low graduation rates, students’ lack of college-readiness, and the continual failure of schools to serve the poorest children have made it clear that the education system needs a change. However, efforts to improve our education challenges have been hindered by a sea of proposals based merely on theory or anecdote. We need real solutions to these problems—solutions backed by data and proven through practice. We need models and tools that prepare students for the rigors of college, for the workplace, and for life. We must implement programs that empower teachers and school leaders for future success.

Tim Knowles, the John Dewey Director and Clinical Professor of the University of Chicago Urban Education Institute (UEI), will share his thoughts on these essential matters, address the work already underway in Chicago, as well as in New York, and discuss the challenges of nationwide urban school reform.  Directly following the presentation, Tim will be joined by Robert L. Hughes, President of New Visions for Public Schools, to answer questions from the audiences about trends in urban schooling and work underway in New York City and beyond.
