The pursuit of quality public education in Cleveland is a complex and daunting challenge. However, an increasing variety of innovative strategies and tactical school choice initiatives are being employed. How are these local innovations changing the conversation about education? How is increasing choice impacting urban public education? How can urban public schools better address the benefits of parent and community involvement? How can collaboration and cooperation further this pursuit? Is there a role for competition? Four educators will each share their perspectives on these questions and other issues in an interactive discussion. Come hear leaders from three successful community schools and the chief academic officer of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District talk about their innovative work.
