Summary

On Thursday, May 8, 2014, the Committee on Education hosted a public lecture to celebrate the launch of its initiative on Successful Pathways from School to Work, recognizing its inaugural cohort of grantees, and honor the late Hymen Milgrom.  

William Julius Wilson, the Lewis P. and Linda L. Geyser University Professor at Harvard University, will gave the keynote address.  This was followed by a panel discussion featuring distinguished scholars, community leaders, and practitioners who responded to Wilson’s lecture and discussed ways to improve the academic preparation of urban youth.
