The High Street Hill Association proudly presents the first in a series of talks by authors in the neighorbood. Eric Schwarz, a resident of Hawthorn Road and founding CEO of Citizen Schools and the College for Social Innovation, will discuss his book The Opportunity Equation, the story of triumphs and setbacks encountered in the development of Citizen Schools, a program designed to combat rising inequality in our public school system. Citizen Schools today partners with public middle schools in low-income communities to provide an expanded learning day, rich with new opportunities. Hear how Citizen Schools has succeeded in bridging the wealth-based achievement gap by providing thousands of low-income students experiences they would not otherwise have access to. We hope Eric will also bring us up to date on his latest project, the College for Social innovation.
