FoT@PreK-12 Panel: Education Policy Today: Pathway or Problem?

In this candid conversation with top state-, district-, and policy leaders, we will explore whether education policy today is a problem or a pathway for the innovation required to raise the bar for students. Panelists will discuss policy at the federal, state, local levels and reflect on how it has both fueled and curbed their efforts. We will focus on creative approaches to navigating and leveraging education policies to drive innovation, reflect on current and future policy challenges, and discuss whether education policy must adapt (and how) to meet the needs of America's students.

Moderator: Romy Drucker, CEO, The 74

Panelists: Lewis Ferebee, Superintendent, Indianapolis Public Schools; Barbara Jenkins, Superintendent, Orange County Public Schools; Lillian Pace, Senior Director of National Policy, KnowledgeWorks; Hanna Skandera, Former Superintendent, New Mexico Department of Education
