American K–12 schooling is awash in a sea of good intentions and ambitious reforms. In recent years, well-intentioned advocates have enacted numerous reforms on issues surrounding teacher quality, charter schooling, and digital learning. Will these reforms deliver on their promise and endure for generations to come, or will they become short-lived fads that at best underdeliver and at worst perpetuate the very problems they intended to solve?
At this event, Louisiana’s influential state chief, John White, will argue that in order to maintain their positive influence on the American education system, today’s reformers must be cautious not to create a status quo of their own. He will offer thoughts from the field on how education reformers can ensure that their efforts drive lasting change.
