May 8 Assembly: Why the Right & Left Both Get School Reform Wrong with George Helton, PhD


Common beliefs across the political spectrum are that our public schools, kindergarten through high school, are ‘broken’ and that fixing them will eliminate poverty and ensure our country’s economic competitiveness. What does research suggest about the truth of these beliefs and the effectiveness of various proposals for improving public schools?

George Helton PhD will lead this forum. George is a UUCC member and Professor Emeritus of School Psychology at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Prior to coming to UTC, George was a school psychologist and director of students services in public schools in Texas.
