Currently, there is considerable debate on the sustainability of urban school turn around efforts.  In 2009, the Obama Administration announced its intention to "turn around" 5,000 of the nation's lowest performing schools.  Since that time, school districts have scrambled to find district and school-level leaders who specialize in this work.  Critics say it's not sustainable while proponents say its the only way.

Join us tonight for a special ONE HOUR broadcast at 8pm EST/5pm PST.  This broadcast is happening live from the Annual Conference on Education with the American Association of School Administrators in Los Angeles California.   

Our guests include Mr. David Tokofsy, Stategist - Associated Administrators Los Angeles and Dr. Dewayne Davis, Director of Secondary Instruction-LAUSD.

Join us tonight for this special event!
