Critical Conversations in Urban Education (CCUE)
Purpose of the Critical Conversations in Urban Education Lecture Series
The Critical Conversations in Urban Education Lecture Series is the School of Education’s vehicle for critical dialogue and continuing education on issues important to the education of youth in urban settings, including Philadelphia. The series seeks to connect the academic and broader communities together for collaboration, understanding, and support that empower urban schools, educators, families, and students.
The CCUE Series effectively stimulates critical discussions related to preparing urban educators, optimizing academic achievement for all students, and fostering university-community partnerships. We would be honored to have you join us at our next event!
