David Osborne in Memphis

07 Nov


07 Nov 12:00 pm - 01 Jan 2:00 pm


Memphis Education Fund

1350 Concourse Avenue, Memphis

The Progressive Policy Institute and the Memphis Education Fund fund invite you to join us as we celebrate the release of David Osborne’s new book, Reinventing America’s Schools: Creating a 21st Century Education System. This book is the cornerstone of the education project at PPI.

David is the author of several books, including the New York Times bestseller Reinventing Government. Born of a need in America’s inner cities, a new paradigm of public education is emerging, to fit the realities of the 21st century. In his new book, David offers a bracing survey of the most dramatic improvements taking place in urban education today in cities as diverse as Denver, Washington D.C., and New Orleans. These cities all have one thing in common – they all embrace a public education system that relies on school autonomy, accountability, and choice.

Over lunch, David will present the vision for education reform revealed in his new book before participating in a fireside discussion with Marcus Robinson, CEO of the Memphis Education Fund. An audience Q&A will follow. Please join us for this important conversation.
