Bellwether Education Partners hosted  a panel discussion about Andy Smarick’s new book, The Urban School System of the Future. In the book, Smarick argues that the traditional urban school system is broken and cannot be fixed. To replace it, he proposes that a new type of organization be created to oversee a portfolio of chartered urban schools.

John White, Kaya Henderson, and Mike Casserly participated in the panel discussion, which was hosted by Andy Rotherham.

Smarick first wrote about this topic in “Wave of the Future,” which appeared in the Winter 2008 issue of Ed Next.
