January 10, 2018 -You're Invited: "Reinventing America's Schools" with David Osborne in Cleveland

David Osborne, Director of Reinventing America's Schools, in Cleveland!

 

Hello J. Leonard,

You’re Invited: Reinventing America's Schools: Creating a 21st Century Education System in Cleveland.

Next month, David Osborne will discuss his new book, Reinventing America's Schools: Creating a 21st Century Education System, and how charter schools could lead the way to academic success at The City Club of Cleveland.

When The Cleveland Plan was implemented in 2012, it brought various education changes, including an increased relationship between the charter school and public school systems. The Cleveland Plan wanted to emphasize excellence in education, regardless of the type of school. The plan has led to an increased third grade reading proficiency, enrollment, attendance, and graduation rates. Though some remain skeptical of charter schools, many cities are embracing innovative ways to improve student’s success, including New Orleans, Denver, and Washington D.C.

In David Osborne’s new book, Reinventing America's Schools: Creating a 21st Century Education System, he shares the stories of these communities to reflect upon the history and future of public education. After years of extensive research, he argues that charter schools provide necessary autonomy, accountability, diversity of school designs, and parental choice that could be executed in public schools.

Osborne has been a figure in the public sector for decades, including serving as senior advisor to Vice President Gore in 1993, and running the National Performance Review. He is the co-author of six books on public sector reform, including the New York Times bestseller, Reinventing Government. Currently, he is the director of the Progressive Policy Institute’s project on Reinventing America’s Schools.

GLOBAL YOUTH JUSTICE
Global Youth Justice, Inc. Champions 1,700+ volunteer-driven and youth-led diversion programs called Teen Court, Youth Court, Peer Court, Student Court, and Peer Jury on 4-Continents, making them the most replicated juvenile justice and youth justice program around the globe. And, adults community leaders and volunteer youth from hundreds of additional communities around the globe are in various stages of implementing one of these rapidly expanding juvenile justice and youth justice diversion programs.

These affordable diversion programs, are an early step in a system of local graduated sanctions, which harness positive peer pressure and utilize it in a peer judgment setting to help address the anti-social, delinquent, and criminal behavior of youthful offenders. The peer judgment, volunteer-driven, youth-led, and positive peer pressure aspects of these diversion programs are the primary programmatic elements that separate these juvenile justice and youth justice diversion programs from all others. They are providing a much needed local alternative for communities to provide youthful offenders a second, and even third chance, of avoiding further more serious juvenile and youth justice involvement -- and future criminal justice system involvement.
