Eighth Annual Urban Child Symposium to focus on education


Don’t miss the Sayra and Neil Meyerhoff Center for Families, Children and the Court‘s Eighth Annual Urban Child Symposium, to be held Thursday, April 7, 2016, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. in the moot courtroom of the University of Baltimore’s John and Frances Angelos Law Center (1401 N. Charles St., Baltimore, MD 21201).

Titled “The Education of the Urban Child,” the symposium will feature Deputy U.S. Secretary of Education James Cole Jr. as the keynote speaker.

From the invitation:

“There are few, if any, aspects of a community’s well-being that matter more than the quality of its public education. Education has an impact on every aspect of life: from employment rates to crime rates, from the number of houses bought to the number of teen pregnancies. We know that to have healthy and productive communities, education must be our first priority, particularly in low-income, urban neighborhoods. This symposium examines some of the most difficult challenges facing Baltimore and other large urban areas as they confront troubled schools and the children and families they serve.”
