Lessons of Hope: How to Fix Our Schools

Date: Wednesday, January 14, 2015
Time: 9:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. ET (14:30 -– 16:00 GMT or convert time)

Join us to discuss Joel Klein’s revealing and provocative memoir, where the former chancellor of New York City schools offers the behind-the-scenes story of the city’s dramatic campaign to improve public education and an inspiring blueprint for national reform.

Lessons of Hope is Klein’s inside account of his eight-year mission of improvement and of initiatives that resulted in more school choice, higher graduation rates, and improved test scores. The book lays bare the problems plaguing public education and shows how they can be solved.

At its core lies Klein’s personal story: his humble upbringing in Brooklyn and Queens, and the key role that outstanding public school teachers played in nurturing his success.
