Professor Garrison to speak about education reform at Karpeles

Teachers encouraged to attend an upcoming evening seminar with acclaimed education professor Dr. Mark Garrison.

Dr. Garrison is a professor from D'Youville College who has become nationally recognized as an expert and critic on current issues and reforms in education.  He speaks about a wide range of topics that are impacting students, parents, teachers, and administrators in today's educational climate:  CCLS, Privatization, APPR, and Local Governance structures in education and in our democracy.  

We are privileged to have a scholar like Dr. Garrison as a local expert right here in Buffalo.  This event is completely free for all teachers, and is being conducted completely for free by Dr. Garrison.  It is being sponsored for all teachers by a handful of Buffalo teachers who know Dr. Garrison personally, have taken his education classes, or who had graduated from high school at the same time as him.  

It is the hope of all those involved with this evening that we can build up an audience that is passionate and inquisitive about the current issues.

Please mark your calendars for this great event, Tuesday, June 10th, from 4-6pm, at Karpeles Church at Jersey and Porter Avenue (Corner of Grover Cleveland HS -- behind Kleinhans).  Information submitted by Professor Patrick Foster, Global History at Lafayette High School.

"Let’s be honest: we need a lot more well-off, well-educated white folks with a personal stake in both charter schools and education reform in general if we’re going to take reform to the next level, both politically and operationally.Whitney Tilson, hedge fund manager and major funding angel for the school privatizing Democrats for Education Reform, thinks there’s not enough rich, educated white folks.( Preaprez) click photo to his blog.
