Community Forum Sept. 26th: The Presidential Platforms

What are President Obama and presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s plans for education reform and how will these policies affect you? What do you need to know about each of the candidates’ stances on education before you vote this November?

AchieveMpls’ September “Our City, Our Schools” community forum will explore the Democratic and Republican presidential candidates’ education platforms at both a national and local level through conversation with Beth Hawkins, education and policy reporter for Minnpost.

Hawkins will provide an overview of each candidate’s education platform and how potential policy changes might affect public education. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss such hot-button issues as No Child Left Behind, Race to the Top, charters and school choice, teacher evaluation, funding for schools, the achievement gap, and preparing young people for college and careers.

Come prepared to ask your specific questions about the candidate’s plans for public education!
