Re-Imagining Education: South Bend Area Perspectives


Location: McKenna Center

A panel of educational leaders in the South Bend area will stimulate discussions about issues that have emerged during the Notre Dame Forum and how to view them from a local perspective. Four school principals (Deb Martin of McKinley Primary Center, Karla Lee of Edison Intermediate Center, John Kennedy of New Tech High School, and Darice Austin-Phillips of Perley Primary Fine Arts Academy) will engage in a panel discussion, accompanied by local organizations, teachers, and principals sharing their stories through poster presentations in the lobby, plus heavy hors d’oeurves. The event is open to the public, free of charge. Local educators and parents are especially encouraged to attend. The event is sponsored by the Education, Schooling, and Society academic minor program.
