Public education in America is a multi-billion dollar business that represents the largest responsibility of most state and local governments, with major federal government and private business engagement as well. Heightened expectations to better prepare students for life after school, persistent equity gaps, and, more recently, funding challenges have led to vigorous debates across the nation about how best to reform public education. Professor Anne Holton brings to the classroom her perspective as former Virginia Secretary of Education and current Board of Education member, as well as her extensive experience at the intersection of education and politics nationally.
Date: Wednesday, July 17, 2019 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. (Arlington, VA Campus)
