A Discussion about the Challenges and Opportunities Facing Public Schools.  

 

Pennsylvania schools are confronting some very significant challenges: eroding state funding, declining tax bases, dramatically changing demographics, aging faculty, state and federal testing requirements among others.  In some quarters even the concept of public education is under attack.

Our schools are vital to the health and well-being of our communities.  We are told that jobs in the emerging economy will require higher levels of education.  Our schools are the platform for success in college and they will help shape our economic future and the workforce of tomorrow.  And of course they are essential for creating engaged public citizens.

How are schools confronting these challenges?  How can schools, particularly our secondary schools, provide access to a quality education for all of their students?  What has worked in making a successful school?  And how can the broader community support these efforts?

The Education Summit, hosted by the O'Pake Institute at Alvernia University, the Reading School District and the Berks County Intermediate Unit, will explore these issues.  

Panelists:

  • Linda Cliatt-Wayman, the principal who turned around Philadelphia's Strawberry Mansion High School;

  • Khalid Mumin, Superintendent of the Reading School District; and

  • Jill Hackman, Executive Director of the Berks County Intermediate Unit

Join Alvernia President, Tom Flynn in this important conversation.
