1/23 - A Conversation with David Osborne

The Progressive Policy Institute, Rocketship Public Schools, and Teach for America Bay Area 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.

During a reception, David will present the vision for education reform as revealed in his new book before participating in a panel discussion with local education leaders to discuss the book and how it applies to San Jose’s education system.

This event is free, but seating is limited. Please RSVP soon.

Onsite parking is available. There is also an overflow lot available at the church located next to the Academy.
