Budgets can oftentimes be filled with difficult to understand terms, numbers, and columns. For educators and researchers engaged in making change, reading a budget is an important, and potentially difficult task. In this talk, Jon Fullerton will provide attendees with information about how to read a budget. Fullerton is the executive director of the Center for Education Policy Research at Harvard University. He has extensive experience working with policymakers and executives in designing and implementing organizational change and improvements. Before coming to Harvard, Fullerton served as the Board of Education's director of budget and financial policy for the Los Angeles Unified School District. In this capacity, he provided independent evaluations of district reforms and helped to ensure that the district's budget was aligned with board priorities.

Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot: Ask Me Anything
Thursday, April 1
1 p.m. ET
Join us for a facilitated Ask Me Anything (AMA)-style session. Following responses to some preliminary questions, students will have an opportunity to ask questions of their own. Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot is the Emily Hargroves Fisher Research Professor of Education at HGSE. Lawrence-Lightfoot, a sociologist, examines the culture of schools, the broad ecology of education, and the relationship between human development and social change. She is the author of 10 books. Upon her retirement, the Emily Hargroves Fisher Endowed Chair will become the Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot Chair, making Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot the first African-American woman in Harvard's history to have an endowed professorship named in her honor.
Space is limited and registration is required. If interest exceeds the number we are able to include, then we will use a lottery system to determine participation. This session will be recorded and posted to The Hub.
