What do the educators in successful schools and districts do to be so successful? It shouldn’t be all that surprising, but it turns out they pay a lot of attention to established research. Chenoweth will share the hard-won wisdom of educators in successful and improving high-poverty schools and districts from Mobile, Alabama, to Los Angeles County, California, to Chicago, Illinois. (Yes, that Chicago, Illinois. Stop being so surprised.)
Karin Chenoweth is writer-in-residence at The Education Trust, a national education advocacy organization that works to improve academic achievement for all children, but particularly children of color and children from low-income families. Her most recent book is Schools that Succeed: How Educators Marshal the Power of Schools for Improvement (Harvard Education Press, 2017) and she recently launched Ed Trust’s brand-new podcast, Extra-Ordinary Districts.
