Oct. 26 Meeting Looks at Federal Role in EducationOctober 17th, 2011 by lwvkitsap
The League of Women Voters of Kitsap will explore the federal
role in public education at its next meeting, Wednesday, Oct. 26,
from 10 a.m. to noon at the Eagles Nest, 1200 Fairgrounds Road,
A panel of local educators will be on hand to discuss the issues and answer questions. They are Greg Lynch, Superintendent, Central Kitsap School District; Kathryn Simpson, Board President, South Kitsap School District; Wayne Lindberg, Finance and Operations Director, Bremerton School District; and Chris Fraser, President, North Kitsap Education Association.
Please plan to attend and bring your questions. For example, has No Child Left Behind worked? Should the federal government mandate items as a condition for funding or should there be more equity and/or flexibility in funding? Should common standards, assessments and curriculum be required or voluntary in all states?
The gathering is free and open to the public. For information call (360) 697-7924.
