In this AEI Events Podcast, AEI’s Nat Malkus welcomes Elizabeth McGhee Hassrick, Stephen Raudenbush, and Lisa Rosen, the authors of “The Ambitious Elementary School: Its Conception, Design, and Implications for Educational Equality,” to AEI to discuss school design, personalized instruction, and educational equality.
The authors open the event by describing their theory of school reform and its implementation at the University of Chicago Charter School. Their efforts have reduced racial inequality and improved reading ability among elementary school students. In short, the authors advocate for increased collaboration among teachers, administrators, and parents and for systemic approaches to school turnarounds.
