Scenes from The Future of Education

On October 14, PDK welcomed New York State policy makers to discuss "The Future of Education on Long Island." For two hours, Assemblymember Steve Englebright (member of the New York State Assembly Committee on Education), Senator John J. Flanagan (chair of the New York State Senate Committee on Education) and Regent Roger Tilles (representing Judicial District X) fielded questions and spoke frankly about the issues that are important to educators — including charter schools, APPR, state funding, ELL policy, and the influence of business on education. The program was moderated by Prof. Ken Lindblom, PDK at SBU Chapter President, who noted that the panelists' "experience, advice, candor, and good humor provided productive direction as we approach the important and challenging work that faces us."
