President's Education Forum
The Ever-Changing Federal Role in Shaping Educational Policy:
Implications for Local and State Educational Leaders
April 19, 2011
You are invited to attend the second in the 2011 series of Michigan State University President's Education Forums sponsored by Lou Anna Simon, President, and the College of Education. These forums will focus on topics identified by public policy leaders as important to making informed decisions. In previous years, participants have found the forums to be of significant value to their work.
The forum will be held on Tuesday, April 19, 2011, at the Radisson Hotel, located at 111 North Grand Avenue, Lansing. A buffet lunch will begin at 11:15 a.m. The program will start at 12:00 p.m. and will adjourn promptly at 1 p.m. The featured speaker will be Michael Usdan. Mr. Usdan’s presentation, "The Ever-Changing Federal Role in Shaping Educational Policy: Implications for Local and State Educational Leaders," will focus upon a series of contemporary issues relating to the recent growth of federal influence in shaping educational policy and its implications for school leadership at the local and state levels. Please see the attached flyer for greater detail. Also, you may call (517) 353-8950 for additional information regarding the forums.
We hope you will join us on Tuesday, April 19, 2011, at the Radisson Hotel. Please return the RSVP form by Tuesday, April 12. There is no charge for this program; however, if you RSVP but find you must cancel, please call us at (517) 353-8950 before Thursday, April 7.
