Presidential Symposium Tackles Challenges in Rochester City Schools

The Feb. 4 Presidential Symposium, “Revitalizing K-12 Education in Rochester,” featured plenary speaker Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren, Rochester City School Superintendent Bolgen Vargas, and area educators, administrators, and researchers discussing the complexities of urban education, the possibilities for success, and the importance of mobilizing community constituencies to improve Rochester City Schools. University President Joel Seligman concluded the event by pledging to continue the discussion: “This has persisted too long. We are a proud community. We are a successful community. We can turn this around.”
