What's Next for Providence Schools?

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2019 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm (ET)


Positions0 Remaining
Location: Barus & Holley 166

This workshop is a review and discussion of the distressing report about the Providence Public School District by the John Hopkins Institute for Education Policy. The results of this report led to the state takeover of the district. This event is co-sponsored with the Swearer Center and the Annenberg Institute for School Reform and the Brown University Department of Education.  

Students will have the opportunity to hear an overview of the report and then will break into smaller groups to hear from Providence public school parents, students, teachers, administrators, and community partners who will share their feedback about the report and the most productive way for Brown to contribute to long term, sustainable impact in the K-12 schools.

Zack Mezera, Director of Providence Student Union
Elliot Rivera, Youth in Action 
Melissa Emidy, Director of Inspiring Minds
