For our October Action meeting, we will be joining the Michigan Center for Progressive Public Policy at Creative 360 to hear about "The Rise and Fall of Michigan Public Education", with speaker John Austin.
The Michigan Center for Progressive Public Policy has invited John Austin, the former President of the Michigan State Board of Education, to Creative 360 to discuss what can be done to rescue and improve public education in our current state government.
No fee and no registration required.
Mr. Austin recently completed 16 years of elected service on the Michigan State Board of Education from 2001-2017. He served his last 6 years as President.
Austin directs the Michigan Economic Center, a center for ideas and network building to advance Michigan’s economic transformation.
In 2015, Austin brought together the state’s business, labor, education, higher education, and bi-partisan legislators to form the Michigan Higher Education Attainment Round Table (HEART).
Their goal is to implement a new, broadly-supported roadmap to reduce higher education cost, help more citizens – young and old – access a higher education, and put Michigan where it belongs among the best educated states in the country.
