President Wagner has responded to some of the questions the Student Revisioning Committee delivered to him at his State of the University Address and in person.
Sure to cause some controversy is the suggestion that Emory’s Center for Community Partnerships has the resources to benefit Atlanta’s public schools on the same level of an educational studies department. Of course, we are proud and thankful for a “munificent” donation from a trustee intended to raise graduation rates in city schools. Yet these projects are not the same as evidence-based research and training.
We are still awaiting an official reply from Dean Forman by this Friday.
