The Value of Education: More Than Just Test Scores? @ CAM Raleigh | Raleigh | North Carolina | United States

Join us, Thursday, March 28th, for our 2019 education forum with our keynote speaker, Dr. Helen Ladd, co-author of “Educational Goods: Values, Evidence, and Decision Making”.

As Dr. Helen Ladd says in the very opening in her book, “Decisions about education influence the character of the whole society. They shape the way people become individuals, their capacities to live flourishing lives, and how those capacities are distributed across the population.”

The importance of public education goes beyond test scores — it’s an investment to our democracy. We’ll spend the evening discussing the multiple investments that a public education gives to our society: economic productivity, healthy personal relationships, personal fulfillment, and democratic competence.

Don’t miss out on an important opportunity to hear from experts. WakeUP Wake County will host a panel that will answer your submitted public education questions.
