Discussion on School Choice Tonight at Pratt Institute

December 8, 2011

Tonight at 6pm there will be a discussion at Pratt Institute  to help parents and students understand the complex and often confusing labyrinth of finding the perfect school. There are hundreds of middle and high schools which parents/students can choose from, but with all this choice also comes the responsibility to know what is best, and how to navigate through the system.

The discussion will take place on Thursday evening, December 8th in Memorial Hall at the Brooklyn campus of Pratt Institute. SchoolBook, the online partnership of the New York Times and WNYC will present “School Choice: Too Much of a Good Thing?” The discussion will focus on taking a long look at the challenges of navigating the school system of New York City.

Brian Lehrer of WNYC

Brian Lehrer, DJ from WNYC will lead  a “town hall” discussion, exploring the major issues including:

• Whether the expanded landscape of school options has actually improved education for the 1.1 million public school students in the New York City system;
• How foreign language-speaking parents can access the information they need to make good decisions for their children; and
• How to reach families that are too distracted or disinterested to figure out what their options are.
Memorial Hall is located at 200 Willoughby Avenue in Clinton Hill. For more information go to: www.wnyc.org/ce.
