Georgia State University’s Alonzo A. Crim Center for Urban Educational Excellence will host the 13th Annual Sources of Urban Educational Excellence Conference on Saturday, Oct. 20, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Georgia State University’s College of Law (85 Park Place NE, Atlanta).
Ayoka Chenzira, Division Chair for the Arts at Spelman College, will serve as the keynote speaker for the conference, which will examine urban education from multidisciplinary perspectives as it addresses this year’s theme, “It’s About Visibility! Narratives, Critiques and Collective Understanding.”
The 2018 theme asks attendees to ponder the role of visibility in urban education – more specifically, a focus on action and making the larger local-meets-national conversations about urban education visible to all involved. At the same time, visibility-as-action gives policymakers and education advocates access to direct narratives so that they can take informed actions toward sustainable solutions.
Conference registration costs $35 and covers attendance to all presentations; breakfast, lunch and a dessert bar; and admission to Saturday evening post-conference mixer.
