New York City’s school accountability system has been in place for almost a decade. As the Department of Education (DOE) continues to translate the promise of this system into practice, it is important to hold public conversations that examine what has been learned throughout the evolution of accountability. On November 19th the DOE will articulate its insights, share lessons, and explore what’s next. A panel of experts (see below) will respond.


Shael Polakow-Suransky: Chief Academic Officer & Senior Deputy Chancellor, NYC Department of Education

Warren Simmons: Assistant Professor of Urban Education Policy & Director of the Annenberg Institute for School Reform, Brown University

Michael J. Petrilli: Executive Vice President, Thomas B. Fordham Institute

James Liebman: Simon H. Rifkind Professor of Law at Columbia Law School & Director, Center for Public Research and Leadership

Moderated by:

David Steiner: Founding Director, CUNY Institute for Education Policy, and Klara and Larry Silverstein Dean, Hunter College School of Education

A reception starts at 5:30 pm and the Panel Discussion will begin at 6:15 pm.
