Issues & Ale: The Future of Public Education
Tuesday, March 26, 7:00-8:30 PM
Go Comedy! Improv Theater
261 E. Nine Mile Rd., Ferndale, MI 48220
Education reform is a hot topic, but exactly how to improve our public education system is subject to debate. Throughout 2012, The Center for Michigan conducted hundreds of community conversations across Michigan to get input from citizens about the state of K-12 education and how it can be improved. At this Issues & Ale event, we discussed the findings from their report: “THE PUBLIC’S AGENDA FOR PUBLIC EDUCATION: How Michigan citizens want to improve student learning” and heard from experts on the subject of education reform. Dozens of educators and parents also voiced their concerns and questions on the subject.
Michigan Radio Political Analyst Jack Lessenberry hosted this discussion.
Panelists for the event:
John Bebow, President and CEO, Center for Michigan
Shawna Groulx, Assistant Principal, Durand High School; Teacher Fellow, Students First
David Zeman, Managing Director of Content and Communication, Education Trust Midwest
