Last year’s earthquake in Haiti killed nearly 1,300 teachers, leaving a massive void in educational leadership. Sharon Ravitch, a faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education, put together a team of researchers to launch an educational-redevelopment project aimed at helping to rebuild the country’s academic infrastructure. On Mon., Feb. 7, Ravitch will discuss her team’s interventions and goals in a lecture sponsored by McGill’s Faculty of Education.
