|Event Name:||Transforming Urban Education: New York City Schools under Chancellor Joel Klein: An Authors Dialogue|
NYC Education Reform Retrospective
In 2003, under the leadership of Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Chancellor of Schools Joel Klein, New York City (NYC) implemented the Children First initiative—a sweeping wave of educational reform that has been one of the most complex and far-reaching urban reform efforts in the country. In 2009, several foundations came together to organize the New York City Education Reform Retrospective to document this reform effort and to identify lessons for consideration by local and national stakeholders. The Retrospective project brought together an exemplary group of researchers to review key reform areas associated with the initiative, including, among others, the DOE’s approach to managing and governing schools, reforming high school education, creating instructional change, and implementing new teacher and principal recruitment and retention policies. In this illustrated presentation, Dr. Jennifer O’Day will discuss the concept and approach to the New York and similar urban education reviews and highlight key findings of the retrospective. She will be joined by several other authors, including Sean Corcoran, Jeffrey Henig, James Kemple, Leslie Santee Siskin, and Leanna Stiefel.
