Washington, D.C. — On Thursday, May 31, U.S. Department of Education Deputy Secretary Anthony Wilder Miller will 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.

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. At the event, a panel of distinguished experts, including Civic Enterprises’s John Bridgeland, the National Education Association’s Bill Raabe, and AT&T’s Beth Shiroishi 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.
