U.S. Education Reform Task Force Corporate Member Briefing

Speakers:

Julia Levy, Project Director, Independent Task Force on U.S. Education Reform and National Security, Joel I. Klein, CEO, Education Division, News Corporation; Co-Chair, Independent Task Force on U.S. Education Reform and National Security

CFR recently launched an Independent Task Force on U.S. Education Reform and National Security, which will consider the present state of the American educational system; anticipate the skills and knowledge required for U.S. citizens, companies, and national institutions to excel in the twenty-first century; and explore how to equip U.S. schools to provide the world's best education. This high-level group of experts is co-chaired by former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice and former chancellor of the New York City Department of Education Joel Klein.

The Task Force aims to produce a consensus report that will offer guidance to policymakers and others on such issues as how the American education system affects U.S. economic competitiveness, how a faltering education system creates concerns for U.S. national security, how areas of learning should be prioritized, including the acquisition of foreign language skills, the fostering of global citizenship, and other areas of inquiry.

The Task Force seeks input from the private sector on what education reforms the United States should adopt to keep it both competitive and secure. We hope that you and/or a colleague will join us for this special session to share your insights and experience.
