Allen, Robb, Key Policymakers to Discuss Future of Education July 6-7 at U.Va.

June 25, 1999 -- Politicians, policymakers and the public will address the future of pre-school through post-secondary education during the Third Annual Policy Institute July 6-7 at the University of Virginia.

Throughout the program, held in Newcomb Hall Ballroom, speakers will address a broad range of issues affecting both kindergarten-through-grade 12 instruction and higher education in Virginia and in the nation. Sponsored by U.Va.’s Curry School of Education, the institute will focus on such issues as standards of learning, school reform, juvenile justice and equalizing educational opportunities.

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 to clarify new and important directions for the future."

All sessions are free and open to the public. For more information, call (804) 924-3264.
