Geoffrey Canada talks education reformation

At a luncheon at the Grand Hyatt, Geoffrey Canada spoke to a room full of educators, community leaders and education advocates about the need to come together to address education reformation citing the need for innovation and more accountability.

Canada, president and CEO of Harlem Children’s Zone, is an education reformer whose passion for his work to revitalize the education system in Harlem is highlighted in the documentary “Waiting for ‘Superman.'”

The San Antonio Area Foundation hosted the event with support from Frost Bank, Candace and Michael Humphreys, Silver & Black Gives Back, George W. Brackenridge Foundation, The Ewing Halsell Foundation, Hixon Properties Incorporated, Rackspace Hosting, and George M. Rapier, III, M.D.

After the presentation, Canada took questions from the audience and later met with a panel of community leaders. The Ewing Halsell Foundation also provided each guest with a copy of “Waiting for Superman” DVD.
