(Center for Michigan Press Release, March 8, 2013)
Education reform is a hot topic, but exactly how to improve our public education system is subject to debate. Throughout 2012, The Center for Michigan conducted hundreds of community conversations across Michigan to get input from citizens about the state of K-12 education and how it can be improved. At our next Issues & Ale event, we’ll discuss the findings from their report: “THE PUBLIC’S AGENDA FOR PUBLIC EDUCATION: How Michigan citizens want to improve student learning” and hear from experts on the subject of education reform.
Michigan Radio Political Analyst Jack Lessenberry will host this discussion. Whether you’re a parent, educator, or concerned citizen, you’re invited to join in the discussion with your questions and comments.
Issues and Ale is an event series co-sponsored by Michigan Radio and the Center for Michigan designed to engage people in conversations about important issues facing Michigan in an informal atmosphere. Stop by, have a drink, and join in the conversation.
The discussion takes place at Go Comedy! Improv Theater, 261 E. Nine Mile Rd., Ferndale, MI 48220 on Tuesday, March 26, 7:00-8:30 PM.
The group has been to Ferndale at least twice in recent years. To read about previous discussions, see:
