NECAP testing, binding arbitration for teachers,
math/reading/science/technology needs and student scores, school funding formula, teacher evaluations and much, much more.....
Deborah Gist, Rhode Island’s Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education, will talk about those and other challenges that lie ahead for our K-12 public education system.
Education should be on the minds of everyone in business today. One of the keys to remaining competitive in our ever-changing global economy is to ensure that our public education system can continue to provide competent, skilled students who are prepared for the challenges of tomorrow.
But how do we do that? And more importantly, how do we do that consistently and in a cost effective manner?
Be sure to reserve your spot as we gather at Kirkbrae Country Club for a full buffet breakfast to hear from a leader who has many innovative ideas on how to address those issues.
Commissioner Gist is one of Rhode Island's most prominent public figures and she brings a passion for public education that she has displayed since her arrival as commissioner in 2009. In addition to discussing the challenges and successes of our public education system, she will also answer questions from attendees. Dont miss your opportunity to participate.
