The Progressive Policy Institute, Education Post, and the Illinois Network of Charter Schools invite you to join us for a community reception featuring David Osborne as we celebrate the release of David's new book, Reinventing America's Schools: Creating a 21st Century Education System. David is the author of several books, including the New York Times bestseller Reinventing Government. His new book is the cornerstone of the education project at PPI. In this 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. Following a reception, David will present the vision for education reform revealed in his new book before participating in a panel discussion with local education leaders. A Q&A will follow. Please join us for this important conversation. This event is free, but seating is limited. Register soon.
