Great Schools Are Not an Accident

6th Annual Gathering of Leaders

*Great Schools are Not an Accident:** Successful Learning Communities for Boys and Young Men of Color

*Dr. Ron Edmonds*, the leader of the *Effective Schools Movement*, made an historic quote that still reverberates. He said, *”If I can show you one school that successfully educates all students how many more must I show you?”* Ron Edmonds and his colleagues understood that great schools were not an accident; they figure out what needs to be done and painstakingly do it. ****

 

*On April 26-28,* you will meet five schools that understand what it means to educate every student well. These five schools will receive the *inaugural COSEBOC School Award*and will be honored for their tenacity and unswerving belief that *”All Students Can Learn.”* These schools take great pride in the academic, social, and emotional development and achievement for boys and young men of color. They can’t wait to share their secret sauce of success with us in a special symposia on Saturday, April 28th. *Register now*and get ready to witness the schools that Ron Edmonds was talking about.
