CPRE : Consortium for Policy Research in Education

United Kingdom/United States Bilateral Conference on Urban Education

In December 2004, the Consortium for Policy Research in Education (CPRE) and the University of London's Institute of Education held a bilateral conference, developed by Susan Fuhrman of CPRE and Leisha Fullick of the Institute of Education and sponsored by the Goldman Sachs Foundation, so that education researchers and officials from the US and the UK (chiefly from England) could share their experiences, learn from each other, and consider what current approaches to urban schooling seem promising.
