Public Can Discuss Future Of Education With Key Policymakers July 6-7 At U.Va.

June 23, 1999 -- People interested in the future of education, both in Virginia and in the nation, can interact with top decision-makers during the Third Annual Policy Institute July 6-7 at the University of Virginia.

Throughout the two-day program, held in Newcomb Hall Ballroom, key policymakers will discuss a broad range of issues affecting pre-school through post-secondary education.

Sponsored by the Department of Leadership, Foundations and Policy in U.Va.’s Curry School of Education, the institute will address such issues as defining education challenges in the next millennium, standards of learning and school reform. Speakers will also discuss juvenile justice, equalizing educational opportunities and the Blue Ribbon Commission on Higher Education.

Senator Charles S. Robb will deliver the luncheon keynote address on Tuesday, July 6, and former governor George Allen will give the luncheon address on July 7.

"The institute will provide an opportunity to reflect upon what has and has not occurred in the Commonwealth and across the country since the 1989 education summit was convened at U.Va. by President George Bush in 1989," said Carol Camp Yeakey, who is organizing the event. "It may help us clarify new and important directions for the future."

All sessions are free and open to the public. Reservations are required for lunch and must be received by June 30. To make a lunch reservation, contact Yeakey at (804) 924-3264.
