Local Education: How Schenectady is Like Home (4/14 at 7pm)




Members do not need to register. A link for this program will be emailed to all Schenectady County Historical Society members the day of the virtual program.

Jakubowski’s recent research delves into the history of Schenectady’s schools — how reforms over the last 200 years affected Electric City schools and the once rural but now suburban schools around Schenectady County. He will explore how the local Schenectady County area was part of rural, urban, and then suburban growth, decline, change, and practice and policy implementation.

Casey Jakubowski, PhD is the author of two books, Thinking About Teaching, and A Cog in the Machine. After 20 years of K-12 experience, Dr Jakubowski now works with education students at the college level. He teaches courses in history, and is working on a manuscript on the history of education reform in New York State.
