On Thursday, December 4, the Goodwin College Center for Magnet and School Choice Leadership will welcome educators from throughout the country to a symposium on magnet education. Goodwin’s main campus at One Riverside Drive will host the conference from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. There is a minimal charge to attend and preregistration is required.

“Magnets in a School Choice Arena: Innovators of Change” brings together leading researchers, parents, and educational leaders in school policy, law, administration, curriculum, and instruction to share findings on the future of public school magnet programs in light of recent court rulings, policy developments, and research findings.

Presentations will cover a diverse set of topics, including the effect of magnets on student achievement; the impact of integration and resegregation on school equity and academic achievement reform; and the impact on the importance of merging research on parents’ choice values and priorities.

Attendees have the opportunity to visit magnet schools on campus or nearby in East Hartford and Hartford. Goodwin College has three magnet schools on campus – The Connecticut River Academy interdistrict high school, Pathways Academy of Technology and Design, and the Goodwin College Early Childhood Magnet School.
