Bridging the Gap: Connecting College Hill with the Providence Public School District

Co-sponsored by Annenberg Institute and the Department of Education at Brown University

Following a report conducted by a team from Johns Hopkins, Rhode Island's Education Commissioner announced last month a state takeover of the Providence Public School District (PPSD). The original report, released in June, painted a picture of grim academic conditions and shocking building maintanence across the school district.

Join the Education Department and the Annenberg Institute for School Reform to learn more. Hear from a local journalist and current PPSD teachers, students, and administrators. And find out how to get involved to advance education equity in the lives of students and families in Providence. You can make a difference and now is the time!

Panelists:

  • Victor Capellan, Senior Adviser to the Rhode Island Education Commissioner
  • Barbara Mullen, Director of the Center for Leadership and Educational Equity’s (CLEE) Learning Leader Network
  • Travis Escobar, Member of the PPSD School Board, and PSSD Graduate
