Program Description: The upcoming presidential election should reinvigorate conversation  across the nation about public education and a comprehensive reform agenda. The federal  government holds joint authority with states to control equitable education norms and to develop  programs for realizing quality education goals. The interaction between federal and state  governments on implementation and accountability issues, in cluding the Elementary and  Secondary Education Act, as related to No Child Left Behind’s reauthorization, Common Core  standards, and immigrant students, make any state’s responsiveness to federal policies a national  concern with generational consequences. This panel will identify prevalent issues regarding  federal education reform. Panelists will provide perspectives on the intersection between law  and policy, systemic challenges confronting advocates, and viable forward paths. Attendees will  be encourag ed to participate in the question and answer period following the panel presentation
