This week, I was the moderator of the State of Urban Education Plenary Session at the National Urban League Conference. I had the awesome opportunity to interact with an amazing group of panelists: Dr. Julanne Malveaux, former President of Bennett College; Patrice Dobard, Superintendent of the Recovery School District in Louisiana; Esther L. Bush, President of the Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh; Joe Scantlebury, Sr. Policy Officer with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; Jim Shelton, Assistant Deputy Secretary for Innovation and Improvement in the US Department of Education.
The panelists enlightened the audience and myself with their extensive knowledge of the problems with urban education. I listened, learned and contributed to the conversation, which I hope I can find online at some point in the near future (I’ll provide you with video when I can). I only wish Michael Eric Dyson could have joined us, but duty called for him at MSNBC.
