JACKSONVILLE -- Has the State of Florida failed its legal obligation to provide a high quality education?
That question will be explored in a special forum hosted by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida Center for Ethics, Public Policy and the Professions and the UNF College of Education and Human Services. The forum is free and open to the public.
The forum, which will be Oct. 16 at 7:30 p.m. in the University Center, will feature Gerald Bracey , an associate professor in the Graduate School of Education at George Mason University and a panel of Jacksonville education representatives.
Bracey holds a doctorate in psychology from Stanford University. He has held positions at Educational Testing Service, Indiana University, and the Virginia Department of Education. Since 1991, he has been an independent educational researcher and writer who specializes in assessment and policy analysis.
Joining Bracey will be a panel of local experts including Susan Wilkinson, president of the Schultz Center for Teaching and Leadership; Dr. Henry Thomas, chair of the Department of Political Science and Public Administration; Janet Owen, director of UNF Governmental Affairs; and Dr. Pritchy Smith, professor, College of Education and Human Services.
