The Changing Context of Public Education. Luncheon Series
Levine, Arthur
Center for Educational Innovation - Public Education Association
Twelve years ago, Teachers College gained a great educational leader when Arthur Levine took over as president. In the years that followed, he shook up the city's top education school and pushed for new and better connections between Teachers College and the New York City public schools. On March 22, 2006, the Center for Educational Innovation-Public Education Association (CEI-PEA) hosted President Levine as the speaker at its luncheon series. He gave an impassioned, yet practical, speech about the changes that public education has undergone over the past century and what changes need to be made if public education is to continue to serve its purpose of serving all children. He took the attendees back to the neighborhood where he grew up in the South Bronx to paint a picture of the sea change that has taken place in neighborhoods all around the country--a sea change that produces a bleak outlook for young people unless educators address it directly by altering their educational systems and strategies. This paper presents an edited transcript of President Levine's remarks.
