The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and the Federal Role in Education: Opportunities & Challenges
- Wednesday, June 28, 2017 from 5:00pm to 7:30pm
- Strand Union Building - view map
Changes in leadership with U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos and
passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act have raised questions about the appropriate federal role in education and have brought renewed concerns over the role of the federal government in ensuring equity, particularly given the Administration's push for vouchers and expanded school choice. In this keynote, Lance Fusarelli discusses the retreating federal role in education, what it means for principals, superintendents, and community leaders, and the challenges as well as the opportunities presented by these changes.
Dr. Lance Fusarelli is professor and director of graduate programs in the Department of Educational Leadership, Policy and Human Development at North Carolina State University. He is the author or editor of seven books and more than 60 journal articles and book chapters.
This event is free and open to the public. Heavy appetizers will be provided.
