"The Future of Education on Long Island" — A Phi Delta Kappa Event

October 14 at 6:00PM | Stony Brook University

"The Future of Education on Long Island" will feature panelists who can help us read the tea leaves for how K-12 and teacher education will take shape over the next few years. The panel features Assemblymember Steve Englebright (member of the New York State Assembly Committee on Education) and Senator John Flanagan (chair of the New York State Senate Committee on Education). The discussion will be moderated by Ken Lindblom, teacher educator at Stony Brook University and PDK Stony Brook Chapter President.

The world of education has been a torrent of change in the past two years. Race to the Top, Common Core State Standards and implementation, dramatic increases in standards for testing, new requirements for Annual Professional Performance Reviews and Initial Teacher Certification, and massive amounts of quickly produced curriculum materials have resulted in a head-spinning array of issues for educators, parents, and students. The two percent tax cap, increasing numbers of English language learners, and new challenges in special education also add complexity. Discussing the future of education with NYS policy makers will help Long Island's educators continue to address the needs of young people and communities in these turbulent times.

Please join us for what will surely be a fascinating discussion and important opportunity for stakeholders to share their experiences.

Come prepared with questions, comments, and ideas.
