The Changing of the Guard: New Opportunities for Education Leadership

The 2018 midterm elections brought about considerable change in state houses and legislatures across the country, which will directly impact the future of education policy. And while education has become increasingly politicized and traditional alliances have broken down, there is untapped energy among young people, families, and workforce and industry leaders to design better policy and ensure better outcomes in education. This new guard of education leaders will be looked to to improve civil discourse and lead constructive debates about the future of education.

With these changes in state leadership, there is a new opportunity for leaders to work to find common ground and develop solutions for student success. Join us on Wednesday, December 12th at 10:00am ET for a conversation with some of the leaders who are shaping this work and to learn about new resources designed to support people in this work. Speakers include:

Manny Lamarre, Executive Director, Governor Brian Sandoval’s Office of Workforce Innovation
Senegal Mabry, My Brother’s Keeper Alliance Advisory Council Member, Obama Foundation; Assistant to the Chancellor, New York State Education Department; Graduate Student; Binghampton University
Veronica Palmer, CEO and Co-Founder, RISE Colorado
Pedro Rivera, Secretary of Education, Pennsylvania Department of Education
-Moderator: Dan Porterfield, President and CEO, The Aspen Institute
