Upcoming Event at Perrot: Joel Klein, Former chancellor of the New York City Department of Education, and author of Lessons of Hope: How to Fix Our Schools
Wednesday, January 28th, 2015
Radcliffe Children’s Wing
Joel Klein served as chancellor of the New York City Department of Education from 2002 to 2011, and is the author of Lessons of Hope: How to Fix Our Schools. He will share the revealing and provocative behind-the-scenes story of the dramatic campaign to turn around public education in New York City, as well as provide a blueprint for national education reform. His critics argued, “You’ll never fix education until you fix poverty.” Mr. Klein, on the other hand, believes: “We’ll never fix poverty until we fix education.” This is sure to be an enlightening and informative evening for anyone concerned with improving education in the United States.
