Mobilizing Employers, Parents and Communities for K-12 Education

What do employers think of the education system? What do Americans think is the purpose of public K-12 education? What should students be learning? What are the challenges faced by K-12 education today?

The landscape of K-12 education in the United States has shifted substantially in the last 10 years. Yet race-based and income-based achievement gaps and funding inequalities have remained largely unchanged during that time. The scale of policy changes—and the persistence of achievement gaps and inequities—makes this an appropriate moment to take stock of the perspectives of the American public, parents, students, educators and employers on K–12 education.

Join us for this national webinar, with support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, as we hear from expert panelists who will explore the questions above and more. This webinar will follow the launch of the latest comprehensive report on public perceptions of K-12 education, "Our Next Assignment: Where Americans Stand on Public K-12 Education."

Panelists include:

  • Gisela Ariza, Senior Education Policy Analyst, The Leadership Conference Education Fund
  • Susan Bonilla, State Director, California, Council for a Strong America, ReadyNation
  • Paul Yumbla, New School Creation Fellow, High Tech High

Thursday, November 15, 3:30pm ET
