The effort to Reimagine Columbus Education will begin in earnest on Jan. 11, the Columbus Education Commission announced today. The commission announced the schedule of six public meetings it will use to develop recommendations about the future of Columbus education.
The full schedule of meetings is listed below.
Each meeting will address two topics about the future of education and feature expert speakers about those subjects. The public is encouraged to attend.
“Education impacts our entire community, and we hope as many people as possible will join us in this conversation about how to improve teaching and learning for all students,” said Commission Director Eric Fingerhut.
“Attend a meeting, tune in to the broadcasts online, visit our website, and connect with us on Twitter,” Fingerhut said.
The 25-person commission of education, community and business leaders was appointed by Mayor Michael Coleman and City Council President Andrew Ginther. The commission plans to complete draft recommendations by April.
Each meeting will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Locations are still being finalized, but these are the meeting dates:
