The media reports that our public schools are "in crisis," and that our grandchildren are not being prepared for the globalized world in which they will live and work. Are all schools failing or just certain ones? Is school funding the problem? Why are some families choosing other options instead of public schools? Is school choice the answer? What is the underlying problem? Is testing good, bad, or indifferent? What can be changed?
Speakers include: Superintendent of Toledo Public Schools, Dr. Jerome Pecko; Superintendent of the Maritime Academy, Renee Marazon; and the Director of The Adrian College Institute for Education Dr. Andrea Milner moderated by Norm Thal.
