Symposium

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 funders, stakeholders, policymakers, and educators to tackle the tough issues in inner-city education today. From our first moderator, the late Tim Russert, to outstanding panelists like Stedman Graham, Joe Klein, and Paul Tough, the annual gathering brings together leading thinkers to stimulate productive conversation and energize us for our work in the field. The symposium is just another way we strive for the Magis at Gesu!
