Friday Forum Hear from two local experts about the latest developments in our educational system. After each presenter has spoken, engage in a lively discussion with all present. You are welcome to enjoy a lunch purchased from the school during the session. PRESENTERS Barbara Miner “Public Schools and Democracy: What Does the Future Hold?” In 1990, Milwaukee became the first city in the country with a voucher program, under which public tax dollars are provided to private schools. Milwaukee has more “choices” for education than perhaps any other major urban area with voucher schools, public schools, charter schools, open enrollment and Chapter 220, yet the city still has some of the greatest disparities in academic achievement between whites and African Americans. Why? Discuss the future of Wisconsin’s constitutional guarantee of the right to a free and public education. Mary Diez “Standards and Assessments: Promise and Pitfalls” Education reform over the past 30 years has been marked by attempts to clarify what students should know and be able to do. How have standards – for students and for teacher practice – been developed and how have they impacted practice? How have assessments kept pace, or not, with emerging standards, and what new issues have they raised? Discuss what we have learned in 30 years and what future actions would best serve our children.
