HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ More than a dozen state and national education reform experts are gathering for a symposium hosted by the Hartford Public Schools.

Wednesday’s event at The Bushnell will highlight efforts to locate high-achieving schools in urban areas, including Hartford. Also, the role that government, business and philanthropy play in sustaining education reform efforts will be examined.

Hartford Superintendent of Schools Christina M. Kishimoto, is expected to release the results of two research studies on the district, while the University of Connecticut’s Department of Allied Health Services will provide a neighborhood-by-neighborhood analysis of Hartford and the various factors influencing student achievement.

Additionally, Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who last year shepherded an education reform package through the General Assembly, is scheduled to be honored with an award for his efforts.
