Dr. Bob Peterkin
Harvard University Graduate School of Education, Emeritus
“Anyone who is an advocate for urban education understands the challenges facing educators – teachers, principals and superintendents -- who labor in this field. Opportunities for advanced degrees that are within the financial grasp of educators, that supply the necessary, relevant and readily applicable resources, and that support equity and excellence for students are rare and valued. American College of Education offers these opportunities.” - Dr. Peterkin
