    CONVERSATION - Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

    No matter where you live, education reform is a hot-button issue. Whether it’s funding charter schools, opening the system through the voucher program or focusing on strengthening the public schools that already exist, it’s a debate that inspires passion on all sides. Here, we’ll have representatives of each viewpoint discuss their respective merits and question the other concepts, allowing us to get a more nuanced view of what education reform could mean on both a local and national level.

    This program is presented by Sterling Partners, with WBEZ as the presenting media sponsor.
