There has been much heated debate this year over bold changes that affect teachers, including dialing back pensions and union rights. Come to the Fordham Institute on August 23 to hear these matters candidly discussed by two high-visibility national education leaders who don't always agree: Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers and Frederick M. Hess, director of Education Policy Studies at the American Enterprise Institute. Which issues do we actually disagree about? Can we do so in ways that illumine rather than obscure? Our two panelists will prove that it’s possible. Join us for a lively conversation, moderated by Fordham’s ever-lively Michael Petrilli.
