A panel discussion today at the American Enterprise Institute, in Washington, will feature Clayton M. Christensen, the Harvard Business School professor and the lead author of Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns.

He will give an address, which will be followed by a discussion with Christensen and one of his two coauthors, Michael B. Horn, of Innosight Institute, as well as education expert Chester E. Finn Jr., the president of the Thomas B. Fordham Institute.

It will be interesting to learn how Checker Finn and Frederick M. Hess, AEI’s education policy expert who will moderate, will respond to the book.

I’ll be attending and will provide analysis of the discussion here tomorrow.

AEI will also be recording video of the event, and I will give you the link when it is available.
