“At the end of the day, it’s about skills and lifelong learning and making sure that our graduates and, quite frankly, ALL of our workforce is ready to learn, continually learn, continually learn new skills, new opportunities …”

From address to Engage in Education, May 5, 2015
Last night, I had the chance to attend the quarterly meeting and focus group for Engage in Education, an initiative by the Public Education Foundation of Marion County to get public input on the performance of Marion County Schools. The foundation is looking for parents, educators, business leaders and even students to attend and participate in the discussion on how to improve the school system in Marion County. If you want to see changes here, then this is a chance to get involved. The next meeting will likely be in August and it will be one of our events so there’s plenty of time to plan for it. Keep checking here or on Meetup.com or like the Public Education Foundation’s page for more information on their work.
You can find complete information on the program on the Public Education Foundations website (Adobe Reader required).
