Education

So It Begins ...

By Alyson Klein — June 05, 2008 1 min read

From contributing blogger Alyson Klein:

The general election debate over education policy, that is. Federal reporter extraordinaire David Hoff and I will be attending a forum tomorrow sponsored by the Association of Educational Publishers. It’s being billed as the first chance for some the education advisers of Sen. John McCain and Sen. Barack Obama to square off.

The representatives are:

Jeanne Century, Director of Science Education and the Director of Research and Evaluation
University of Chicago’s Center for Elementary Mathematics and Science Education, representing Obama, and Lisa Graham Keegan, principal with the Keegan Company and former state schools superintendent in Arizona, representing Sen. McCain.

The moderator will be Frank Catalano, senior vice president of marketing for Pearson’s U.S. K-12 education businesses

They’ll have a panel of questioners that includes:

Sara Davis, manager of education resource development for USA Today; Neal Goff, president of the Weekly Reader Publishing Group; Margery Mayer, president of Scholastic Education; Joel Packer, the director of education policy and practice for the National Education Association; and Bernice Stafford, a consultant with the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration. Here’s a link to some of their bios.

And apparently, Century and Keegan will also be taking questions from the press. Can’t make it to the forum, but have something you’d like us to ask them? Let us know in the comments section.
