Catalyzing Urban School Change Speaker Series: Rejuvenating and Reinventing Teaching

With 64 million K-12 students in the United States, how can we ensure that each child benefits from dynamic and effective teachers? How can we best harness teachers’ intellectual and pedagogical abilities in a time when students need them the most?

With a focus on city schools, the Institute for Urban Education at Eugene Lang College The New School for Liberal Arts, presents Rejuvenating and Reinventing Teaching,, a panel discussion on Monday, March 28, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., about how teachers can catalyze school change, and how our country can support this effort.

Panelists include Deborah Meier, widely considered the pioneer of the small schools movement and author of The Power of Their Ideas: Lessons for America from a Small School in Harlem; Michele Brochu, facilitator of leadership development for New Visions for Public Schools and co-founder of Bronx Lab School; Louis Delgado, founder and principal of Vanguard High School in New York City; and Jonathan Gyurko, senior advisor to UFT President Randi Weingarten from 2004 – 2010 and co-founder of Green Dot New York Charter School.

This event will take place in the Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Arnhold Hall, 55 West 13th Street, 2nd floor. Admission is free, but reservations are requested by emailing iuesupport@newschool.edu.
