"The Future of Education on Long Island"
Tuesday, October 14, from 6 - 8 pm | Stony Brook University Campus
The world of education has been a torrent of change, resulting in a head-spinning array of issues for educators, parents, and students. The Stony Brook University Chapter of Phi Delta Kappa (PDK) will host a panel discussion featuring state legislators who can help us read the tea leaves for how K-12 and teacher education will take shape over the next few years.
Assemblymember Steve Englebright (member of the New York State Assembly Committee on Education) and Senator John Flanagan (chair of the New York State Senate Committee on Education) will be the panelists. The discussion will be moderated by Ken Lindblom, teacher educator at Stony Brook University and PDK Stony Brook Chapter President. Come prepared with questions, comments, and ideas.
Please join us for what will surely be a fascinating discussion and important opportunity for stakeholders to share their experiences with each other. The event will be held at the English Department's Poetry Center (Humanities room 2001) on Stony Brook University’s main campus. Light refreshments will be served.
PDK members are free; non-members will be asked to donate $10 to PDK Scholarship Fund (for future educators). Seating is limited.
