Faculty Participate in Tri-State Consortium

November 12, 2012

In July, the Tri-State Consortium, an organization that supports high performing public school districts in the New York metropolitan area, held a two-day conference at Brown exploring the degree to which existing high school math and science curricula prepare students for rigorous college level work. The conference brought Brown faculty together with educators from Consortium districts to discuss the knowledge and skills in math and science that Brown professors expect incoming first-year students to possess, and how high school educators might better align their curricula with these expectations. The conference was organized by John Starr, Executive Director of the Tri-State Consortium and Adjunct Lecturer in the Education Department at Brown, with Lamont Gordon, Director of Education Outreach.
