The Purpose of Public Education and Its Future in Wisconsin

 

Many believe that public education in Wisconsin is at a critical juncture in its history. School leaders are challenged to ensure the success of a complex social system for our citizens and an effective education outcome for all children they serve. This at a time when there appears to be a diminishing commitment among policy makers and the general public to the fundamental purposes and value of public education and its contribution to the economic, social, political and civic quality of life in our state. How can today's school district leaders confront this challenge successfully and ensure the next generation of Wisconsin's school aged children and their families will realize the intended purposes for which public schools were created. 

Come and engage with your colleagues in reaffirming the purpose and vision of public education in Wisconsin. Along with internationally respected futurist Gary Marx, re-articulate the core vision for public education in the voice of Wisconsin's School District Leaders. Renew the commitment to the worthy purposes of public schooling and find your voice to initiate critical conversations with policy makers, public citizens and highly invested parents about the value of public schools. You will have the opportunity to engage with significant partners aligned in a vision of public education that is focused on moving our state forward. Hear from highly organized parent groups and other established organizations focused on supporting and enhancing your leadership efforts in advocating for high quality education for all children in Wisconsin. You are not in this alone.
