Community Forum on the Next Governor’s Education Agenda
Forum on next Governor’s education agenda set
Pennsylvania’s public schools, especially in Philadelphia, are in dire straits. Many hope that the upcoming gubernatorial election will help shine a light on the state’s education issues.
But how will Harrisburg politics and financial realities limit the next governor’s agenda for education?
Join Research for Action, WHYY, and United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey (UWGPSNJ) for an interactive community forum designed to suggest an education agenda for the next administration – and to assess the politics of achieving it.
What About the Schools? A Community Forum on the Next Governor’s Education Agenda will take place on Wednesday, October 15th from 7-9pm (doors open at 6:30pm) at WHYY, Independence Mall West, 150 N. 6th Street, Philadelphia. Hear from local educators about what they see as priorities for the schools, and from seasoned policy practitioners on the political realities of Harrisburg. Then, make your voice heard. Discuss your thoughts and perspectives with other event guests and interact with the panelists.
You’ll come away from this spirited discussion with a more nuanced view of the politics of education in both Philadelphia and at the state level.
Admission is free and open to the public, but you must register here. Call 215-351-0511 with any questions Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm.
