11/1 MAXCNY Lunch & Lecture: “Translating Education Policy to True Reform: Where are We Falling Short?”

MAXCNY Lunch and Lecture Series 2011

Called upon to “innovate” and “be creative” in the face of sharp budget cuts and staff layoffs, educators are faced with a tremendous challenge. The call for accountability, push for educational attainment and improved outcomes is at odds with shrinking resources and conflicting policy agendas. Bill Duncombe and Kirk Knestis come together to highlight the connections and consequences between current public policy agendas, fiscal realities and the ability to deliver quality public education.
