LIVE: Education Experts Discuss Why Historically Black Colleges & Universities Are Ideal for Charter Schools

During the month of February, The 74 and the Progressive Policy Institute explored the potential role that Historically Black Colleges and Universities could fulfill as charter school authorizers. Now, our focus shifts to examining the accomplishments of charter schools situated on HBCU campuses and their impact on fostering innovation in K-12 education.

Don’t miss the online panel hosted by The 74 and the Progressive Policy Institute at 1 p.m. ET on Wednesday, delving into the transformative influence of HBCUs on K-12 education. Join us as we listen to insights from esteemed leaders such as Dr. Kathryn Procope, who serves as the executive director of Howard University Middle School of Mathematics and Science; Dr. Angela Lang, the visionary behind I Dream Big Charter School at Stillman College; and Dr. Quinhon Scott, the executive director of Coppin Academy High School at Coppin University.
