Marketing Schools, Marketing Cities: Book Discussion
Join us for a discussion of Maia Cucchiara’s book Marketing Schools, Marketing Cities which examines the intersection of education reform and gentrification.
Focusing on Philadelphia’s Center City Schools Initiative, Cucchiara writes about how education policy makes overt attempts to prevent, or at least slow, middle-class flight to the suburbs. Her book explores policies that strengthen urban schools, and therefore communities, but at the same time further marginalized lower-class families.
This book discussion is hosted in collaboration with the IUPUI Urban Education Studies Doctoral Program.
