K-12 Education Reform: Ensuring American Students Remain Competitive

Monday, May 2, 2011 / 9:30 am - 10:45 am


The American people and the politicians finally seem to have reached a consensus: Children in our K-12 public schools deserve and must have better. Everyone - superintendents, administrators, teachers, principals, union officials and elected legislators - is on the hot seat, expected to start delivering results. Proposed solutions abound, from President Obama and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan to school superintendents, business executives, labor leaders, and nonprofit foundations and think tanks. But are we headed in the right direction? Are our education and political leaders ready to meet world standards? Can there be consensus and collaboration on reaching shared goals?
