State of American Education Session at National Principals Conference

The fourth annual State of American Education will consist of a crossfire-style debate between two thought leaders in education policy who will discuss emerging issues in education reform at the national level. John Merrow, a well-known former education correspondent for “PBS News Hour,” will moderate the discussion and address hot topics such as changing student demographics, educational equity, teacher quality, private school vouchers, testing and accountability, and college and career readiness. This debate will expose attendees to an engaging and thought-provoking discussion while also providing them with an opportunity to ask difficult questions on these controversial issues.
