Urban Education Dialogue

The Urban Education Dialogue brings together superintendents from California urban schools three times a year to share best practices, generate creative ideas, and improve education policy.

Typically, 10-15 superintendents attend the two day dialogue and share ideas and concerns in an open forum. Topics are selected in advance by the Dialogue facilitator. Each meeting features at least one guest speaker who presents research findings or new ideas based on input from the superintendents related to urban education.

The goals of the dialogue are:

  • For superintendents to share best practices
  • To promote creative thinking about issues of common concern
  • To use the collective energy of superintendents to improve education policy
