How will our new leaders ensure all Seattleites have the ability to walk, bike, and take transit to where they need to go? What strategies will they implement to make living in Seattle’s beloved neighborhoods affordable to all? What does equity mean in the context of transportation and land-use decision making?

    Askwith Forum - Religious Freedom: Inclusion, Exclusion, and the Role of Education

    • Diane L. Moore, Senior Lecturer on Religious Studies and Education and Senior Fellow at the Center for the Study of World Religions, Harvard Divinity School
    • Farah Pandith, Adjunct Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations; former Special Representative to Muslim Communities, U.S. Department of State

    Recent debates about immigration, discrimination, and national identity have often overlapped with those about religion, belonging, and citizenship. In our global landscape, we find ourselves living alongside neighbors whose beliefs and practices are quite different from our own. With this diversity, there is a growing need worldwide to discuss religious freedom — and its limits — in democratic societies. These are not easy conversations, and the tone of recent debates about religious freedom suggests that we need to get better at talking about these issues, or else risk further polarization.

    Using as a starting point George Washington's 1790 Letter to the Hebrew Congregation of Newport, Rhode Island — a landmark in the history of religious freedom in America — this interdisciplinary panel will explore inclusion and exclusion through the lens of religious differences. Join us as we consider the role that education can play in promoting informed and civil conversation about religious freedom and the responsibilities of citizenship in a democracy.

    This forum is being held in collaboration with Facing History and Ourselves and the George Washington Institute for Religious Freedom.

    The equity mission of urban school districts — to provide an excellent education to all students — is more difficult than ever to achieve. This Askwith Forum examines the social responsibility superintendents bear in leading their districts in educating underserved students. How can these leaders move their districts beyond providing “equity of access” to achieve “equity of outcomes” with students’ more advantaged peers? Our panel of urban superintendents shares their unique perspectives on this work with Charles Ogletree, and Robert Peterkin closes the evening by examining the implications for future leadership practice.

    This forum is being held in conjunction with the Urban Superintendents Program convening in celebration of the USP program, which began 25 years ago.

    Askwith Forums - Driving Change: Challenges Superintendents Face in Urban Schools

    Andrés A. Alonso, Ed.M.'99, Ed.D'06, professor of practice and co-chair, Public Education Leadership Project (PELP), HGSE

    When it comes to leading reforms in urban school districts, superintendents face a unique set of challenges – often with highly fractured constituents and stakeholders, limited operational capacity, enormous achievement gaps, a lack of resources, and a dependency on the state.

    How can superintendents drive radical change and innovation in their districts? How do they conceive of their roles in relation to the problems they are trying to solve? What are the lessons learned about theories of action, strategy, and implementation?

    In addition to discussing experiences with the management of large, city school districts, this forum will also explore the larger accountability environment in urban school districts and the changes set into motion by the Every Student Succeeds Act, and discuss what gets in the way and what fosters improvement in these settings.

    Kellyanne Conway FULL HEATED Debate With Clinton Campaign At Harvard December 1, 2016


    Aides for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump got pretty heated about the election aftermath during a Harvard University forum yesterday.

    Based on multiple reports from the event, it’s clear that Team Clinton is still pretty frustrated with how the campaign was covered and what Trump himself was doing during the campaign.

    According to The Washington Post, Clinton campaign official Jennifer Palmieri said, “If providing a platform for white supremacists makes me a brilliant tactician, I am proud to have lost. I would rather lose than win the way you guys did.”

    That led to this fierce back and forth: Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s campaign manager, fumed: “Do you think I ran a campaign where white supremacists had a platform?” “You did, Kellyanne. You did,” interjected Palmieri, who choked up at various points of the session. “Do you think you could have just had a decent message for white, working-class voters?” Conway continued. “How about, it’s Hillary Clinton, she doesn’t connect with people? How about, they have nothing in common with her? How about, she doesn’t have an economic message?”

    Robby Mook and Joel Benenson pointed out at one point that Clinton won the popular vote, and according to ABC News, this resulted in Conway saying, “Hey guys, we won -– there’s no need to respond.”

    She also told Team Clinton, “Guys, I can tell you are angry, but wow. Hashtag he’s your president. How’s that? Will you ever accept the election results? Will you tell your protesters that he’s their president, too?”

    The Daily Beast rounded up some of the audience reactions to what they witnessed: Much of the audience was unimpressed with what was seen as childish behavior fueled by still fresh memories and wounds from a vicious campaign. Others were more amused. “This is gonna be good stuff for the history books!” one audience member said. “It’s like a goddamn foodfight,” another observed with a smirk.

    You can listen to the full audio of the roundtable above.
