What is Brown's Annenberg Institute Doing to Fix Public Education? Plenty!



Wednesday May 8Time: 6:30 to 8:00 PM
Susanna Loeb, the new Director of Brown’s Annenberg Institute, led Getting Down to Facts projects to provide California citizens with key information about our state’s school finances and governance.
Formerly a member of the National Board for Education Sciences and the National Bureau of Economic Research, Loeb was also the founding director of the Center for Education Policy at Stanford and the co-director of Policy Analysis for California Education.
Annenberg is researching how to help STEM teachers improve their effectiveness and how to help all teachers increase graduation rates of at-risk students. This builds on Loeb’s extensive research in other areas such as the correlation of teacher pay to academic performance, why the benefits of the Head Start program tend to fade over time and what the impact is of experienced school principals on school and student success.
Please join us at the beautiful, Emerald Bay home of Tamara and Dr. Jeffrey Deckey, M.D. ’88, P’22, for catered refreshments and a stimulating, timely discussion about Brown’s role in the ongoing debate about public education in America.
