Warner to Host Public Forum on Charter Schools

Teacher working with students in a classroomUTL Spring Forum on Urban Education—
"Urban Charter Schools: Perspectives from the Inside"

Monday, April 4, 2011
5 to 6:45 p.m.
University of Rochester's River Campus Dewey Hall 1-101

Public debates over the role of charter schools in urban educational reform often provide cursory depictions of life within these institutions. This forum will examine the opportunities and challenges encountered by charter schools from the perspectives of educators, parents, and students who work at or attend local charters. By centering these insider perspectives, this forum will provide a unique opportunity to explore what urban educational stakeholders can learn from the urban charter school experience.

The event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited. 

The event is sponsored by the Urban Teaching and Leadership (UTL) Program at the Warner School of Education. For more information, please contact Ed Brockenbrough.
