Always seeking to improve education for all of America’s inner-city children, Gesu School launched our Annual Symposium on Transforming Inner-City Education in 1997 to bring together educators, policymakers, and other stakeholders to tackle the tough issues in urban education. From our first moderator, the late Tim Russert, to outstanding panelists like Stedman Graham, Joe Klein, and Paul Tough, the annual gathering brings together top thought leaders to stimulate productive conversation and empower educators and the community for our work in the field. The symposium is another way we strive for the Magis at Gesu!
You are invited to Gesu’s Virtual 24th Symposium: Working Together to Manage Pandemic Stress in Our School Communities. Speakers Marsha Richardson, Psy.D., of the University of Pennsylvania and Jabari Whitehead, Ed.D., of Chatham Park Elementary School and Saint Joseph’s University will dialogue on this critical, timely topic. Participant Q&A will follow. Join us on November 18, 2021 at 5pm. Learn more and register.
