Business, education and elected officials came together at the National Center for Policy Analysis’ first Education Colloquium on February 23 to discuss challenges and reform opportunities for public education. Attendees were invited because they represent significant stakeholders in educational outcomes, and to provide perspectives on why there is so much dissatisfaction with the performance of the current system and what policies have the best chance of significantly improving academic outcomes.
