09mar7:00 amGHS/HG: The Roots of Educational Inequality: Philadelphia's Germantown High School (zoom)

Event Details

Join Germantown Historical Society and Historic Germantown for a moderated discussion about urban education and Germantown High School based on the new book, ‘Roots of Educational Inequality’ by Author Erika Kitzmiller. The Roots of Educational Inequality: Philadelphia’s Germantown High School, 1907 – 2014 chronicles the transformation of one American high school over the course of the twentieth century to explore the larger political, economic, and social factors that have contributed to the escalation of educational inequality in modern America.

Educator Researcher and Writer Erika Kitzmiller will be in dialogue with Historic Germantown board member James Earl Davis, the incoming Dean of Temple University’s School of Education and education activist Tomea Sippio-Smith, of Children First. As a call to action, we invite participants to share their memories of GHS by recording oral histories with us and sharing short stories during our event. Calling alumni, teachers, parents, locals – all are welcome.
