In case you missed the article in the Tribune, Notre Dame will be focusing on issues of K-12 education next year through their annual university wide Forum event. Here is an article on the forum – http://newsinfo.nd.edu/news/18817-2011-12-notre-dame-forum-to-explore-k-12-education/
They are starting things off by having multiple viewings of “Waiting for Superman” on cam – April 7th and 10th.
Then on April 13th at 7:30pm there will be a panel discussion – “The System: Opportunity, Crisis, and Obligation in K-12 Education” – with panelists – “Michelle Rhee, former chancellor of Washington, D.C. Public Schools and founder of The New Teacher Project; John Dilulio, the Frederick Fox Leadership Professor of Politics, Religion and Civil Society at the University of Pennsylvania and inaugural director of the White House Office of Faith Based and Community Initiatives; Sara Martinez Tucker, formerly CEO of the Hispanic Scholarship Fund and U.S. Undersecretary of Education and a current member of the Notre Dame Board of Trustees; and Howard Fuller, director of Marquette University’s Institute for the Transformation of Learning and founder of the Black Alliance for Educational Options.”
Should be very interesting event – that will spark much discussion. Tickets are available beginning Monday April 4th for ND faculty, students and staff and April 7th for the general public at Debartolo Performing Arts.
