An Inter-Club Invitation – Private Schools and Diversity with David Allyn, CEO of Oliver Scholars
In this sure-to-be engaging discussion, David Allyn will share his observations on diversity issues at independent schools and his thoughts on the best practices going forward for the school’s parents, trustees, teachers, and administrators. For decades, the private school world has acknowledged that it has a diversity problem. With tuition soaring and financial aid budgets tightening, the problem at many schools is likely to get worse.
David Allyn is CEO of the non-profit Oliver Scholars, an organization that serves high-achieving students who face socioeconomic barriers to success. Allyn is a thoughtful and experienced educator who has written four books and dozens of articles.
