Conversation: The Life and Legacies of Ted Sizer

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will provide an opportunity to reflect on the life and legacies of CES founder
Ted Sizer. John Spencer is a graduate of the Brown teacher education program from the
1980s and an historian of education who has been doing research in Ted's papers at
Brown and Andover. He will briefly share some nuggets from that research, especially
from the 1970s prior to the launching of the Coalition, before opening up a conversation
on Ted's work and his significance within the history of school reform from the 1960s
into our own time. Whether you were a colleague of Ted's or someone who knew him
through his writings or work (or not much at all, and you're curious!), please join us to
share and reflect on his importance for you and for American education.
