As our city prepares for the arrival of the new DISD superintendent, conversations will take place around dinner tables, in boardrooms, during community events and at faith gatherings about how a new leader will impact public education in Dallas.

This breakfast serves as a catalyst for those conversations, and it provides an opportunity to expand the conversation in two critically important ways. The event's five-person panel, moderated by Dean David J. Chard of the Annette Caldwell Simmons School of Education and Human Development, will discuss our ethical responsibility in providing high quality education for every child in Dallas, as well as explore ways we - individually and collectively - can lend our support to the new DISD superintendent to strengthen public education.
