Event description

Description

Join FutureEd & New Classrooms on Tuesday, Sept. 24 in Washington, D.C. for a provocative conversation about the hidden truths of students' unfinished learning in middle school mathematics. In this lively panel hosted by Thomas Toch, Director of FutureEd at Georgetown University, leading experts will discuss and debate the takeaways from The Iceberg Problem, New Classrooms' forthcoming report examining how education policies can unintentionally force educators to measure just a small portion of students’ knowledge.

Registration opens at 9:30am with free continental breakfast. The event will start at 10am and feature a compelling panel of leaders in education:

Kirsten Baesler was elected North Dakota state superintendent of schools in November 2012 and re-elected to her second term in November 2016.
