Normally, conference-goers watch and listen while policy pundits opine on national trends. At the Education Insider Policy Forum, we’re turning this process inside-out: providing educators and investors, philanthropists and researchers with an opportunity to ask questions first – and engage with the policymakers, congressional staff, and officials who shape education policy and funding.
