May 4, 2010

by

From now until the end of May, we will be profiling our Commencement speakers. Commencement is on June 12th, 2010 at Jacob Javits Convention Center.

Gerald Grant
Journalist, Historian…Professor at Syracuse University.  The World We Created at Hamilton Highportrays the dilemmas of the schools today, especially those conditions that cause public schools to retreat behind a façade of bureaucratic legalism and to abandon the attempt to forge a sense of community. Latest book, Hope and Despair in the American City: Why There Are No Bad Schools in Raleigh is a tale of Northern cities, in particular author Gerald Grant’s native Syracuse, N.Y where failing schools torpedo all attempts at urban revitalization. Against that backdrop, Grant presents Wake County’s system as the single best example of the opposite case: a few Southern cities where good schools are driving increased prosperity.  Gerald Grant is particularly interesting because of the article that he wrote on Audrey Cohen College at its start.
