Different Cities Same Challenges: Baltimore & Tulsa Explore Solutions

Visited Baltimore, MD with colleague Kate Silvey and partners Tulsa Public Schools, Reading Partners: Tulsa, and Impact Tulsa. We were joined by the Baltimore City Public Schools, Reading Partners: Baltimore, Baltimore's Promise, and the Enoch Pratt Library. All were hosted by Tulsa's Charles & Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation and Baltimore's Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Foundation. We spent two days exploring and discussing what's working to help children living in poverty succeed in school. Access to books, summer reading programs, and a good school library were revealed as keys to success.
