Virtual program on K-12 education topics is April 27

The Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education at Marquette Law School and the College of Education are hosting a virtual program series on Tuesday, April 27 at 12:15 p.m. 

The program will explore the challenges and opportunities within K-12 education.  

Pedro Noguera and Frederick Hess, are two of the best-known commentators on the American education landscape.

Hess is the director of education policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute, leaning on a conservative side of politics.

Noguera is dean of the Rossier School of Education at the University of Southern California and is generally considered on the left-wing. 

They will discuss their new book, “A Search for Common Ground: Conversations About the Toughest Questions in K–12 Education,” with Alan J. Borsuk, senior fellow in law and public policy. 

The event supports Marquette Law School’s efforts to serve as the region’s leading venue for civil discourse about law and public policy matters and the College of Education’s focus on lifelong learning and appreciation for research and professional growth. 

The program will air online Tuesday, April 27, and can be accessed via the “Watch Now” button.
