(MO) Eye on Education: Failures to Fixes
May 22 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm EDT
Kansas City knows both the pain of a failing education system and promise of renewal as its public schools system anticipates full state accreditation for the first time in nearly 30 years.
Amid debate about the effectiveness and direction of our schools nationwide, a lineup of top policy makers and analysts – including Kansas City Public Schools Superintendent Mark Bedell – examines the state of education today and issues ranging from test-based teacher evaluation to vouchers and charter schools. Discussions are moderated by noted education researcher Jay P. Greene, professor and head of the Department of Education Reform at the University of Arkansas, and Michael McShane, director of education policy at the Show-Me Institute. A light breakfast and box lunches are served.
