Let's Talk Education
Networking, coffee and continental breakfast at 7:30 am. Program starts at 7:45 am!
Each year, the Public School Forum of NC publishes its Top Ten Education Issues which serves as a guidepost for issues to watch in the NC legislature. It offers balanced and nuanced perspective on issues they believe will be on the agenda, as well as those they believe should be on the agenda.
The Forum mission is to provide trusted, nonpartisan, evidence-based research, policy analysis and programs that empower an informed public to demand that education best practice becomes common practice throughout NC. For 30 years, a key purpose of the Forum has been to “speak truth to power” and to advocate for what is best for the children of North Carolina, not just what seems politically possible in the moment.
Keith Poston, President & CEO of the Forum, will be with us to discuss this year’s Top Ten fresh off the presses. Before taking the helm at the Forum in 2014, Poston served in executive positions with Time Warner Cable, Progress Energy, AGL and Ketchum Public Relations in Washington, DC. Keith matches his ability to assimilate various positions and discern the political landscape with his experience informing and shaping strong policy. Join us for what promises to be a dynamic discussion just as the General Assembly is convening for the 2019 long session.
