WHAT: A public policy
roundtable organized by the Baruch College School of Public
Affairs will address the condition of New York City’s

Bloomberg’s ‘reforms” improved the educational
outlook for public school students? Is academic rigor returning
to K-12 classrooms, despite overcrowding, budget shortfalls
and continued funding inequities between the New York City
and NY State schools?
WHEN: Tuesday, Sept. 28, 2004, 9 am – 11 am
WHERE: Baruch College
The Newman Conference Ctr.
151 E. 25 St. (between Lex. & Third Aves)
WHO: Diane Ravitch, Prof. of Education at NYU, influential policy voice and advocate of state and national academic standards will keynote the discussion.
