Fatigued by School Reform: A Book Talk with Jack Jennings
Virtual Event via Webex


AYPF was pleased to partner with education policy expert Jack Jennings to discuss his new book, Fatigued by School Reform.

In a conversation moderated by Dr. Loretta Goodwin, AYPF deputy director, we focused on the book and broader lessons around American K-12 education, economic opportunity and teacher quality.
