Infrastructure Redefined: The Future of Schools

5th in a continuing series
Monday, March 25
6:30 pm reception, 7:00 program
Free for members, $10 for guests

Education is a fundamental component of any society, and public education is among the most salient potential advantages maintained by any nation. As the world changes, the educational landscape becomes increasingly competitive, and this evolution requires us to rethink the way education is defined and applied. The emergence of new models such as charter schools and coding bootcamps reflects this evolution, and establishes a new set of standards and possibilities for the future of learning.

Keeping with the theme of our ongoing panel series, this discussion will explore a kind of infrastructure which is less brick-and-mortar in the traditional sense, but just as meaningful: the infrastructure of our educational institutions and processes. We will hear from a panel of executives with a range of perspectives on public school administration and financing, charter schools, and the value of education in our times.
