Special Guest: Jay Mathews, Education Columnist & Blogger for the Washington Post
Our youth are our future, but our education system is failing them. Join us to hear Education expert, Jay Matthews, columnist from the Washington Post, address:
“What makes for effective and successful education and how do we get there; including an analysis of the current Common Core standards. Are we preparing our young people to be effective and contributive in the workforce?”
Who should attend this event? Everyone. Why? Education is one of the key foundations for developing successful productive adults and, as a country, we are not succeeding in this realm. Our youth deserve better. If you have grandchildren, bring one of their parents as your guest. If you know a teacher that you feel would benefit from this dialogue, invite them to join you.
