Lessons of Hope: How to Fix Our Schools with Joel Klein, Tuesday March 10

At the home of Mort Zuckerman 

You are invited to a private dinner with lawyer, school superintendent, and former Chancellor of the New York City Department of Education. The dinner will be hosted by Mort Zuckerman on Tuesday March 10, 2015 at 7:30pm and all contributions will go to PEN American Center. 

Joel will talk about his book, Lessons of Hope: How to Fix Our Schools. “A recent study showed that the small schools built from the remains of large, comprehensive high schools on Klein’s watch have smartly raised both graduation rates and college attendance. In his new book, Lessons of Hope: How to Fix Our SchoolsKlein discusses his successes, shortcomings, and hopes for the future. At the helm of the nation’s largest school district, Klein pushed for radical reform over incremental change, in hopes of uprooting a stubbornly bureaucratic and complacent system.”
