Role of Public-Private Partnerships in Education

10:00 - 11:00 AM EDT

The country has an economic, as well as a moral, stake in how well our schools are doing and how well our students are succeeding. Chief among stakeholders is the private sector that depends on highly skilled, productive young people for its future workforce and which can be an effective resource for our schools.

Please join the Center for American Progress to discuss corporate citizenship and the role of the public and private sectors in keeping our young people actively engaged in school and in supporting education innovation and reform. Our panelists will discuss the current challenges that the United States faces in public education; how to increase the number of students graduating college and being career-ready; and what can be done to ultimately build a strong workforce.

Distinguished panelists:
Anthony Wilder Miller, Deputy Secretary, U.S. Department of Education
John M. Bridgeland, President and CEO, Civic Enterprises
Bill Raabe, Director of the Center for Great Public Schools, National Education Association
Beth Shiroishi, AT&T Vice President of Sustainability and Philanthropy

Winnie Stachelberg, Executive Vice President for External Affairs, Center for American Progress
