Organizers announced today that the 1300 seats for the forum are sold out. Sessions will be available as a free live video-stream.

Each year NCSU’s Institute for Emerging Issues (IEI) host national and international leaders to discuss a public policy topic. This year’s Forum, Teachers and the Great Economic Debate, brings experts with divergent points of view to examine this topic. In addition, over 150 k-12 educators and administrators from across North Carolina will be active members of the discussion as “Teacher Ambassadors” and education representatives.

“IEI has identified a topic that has meaning and directly relates to North Carolina’s economic competitiveness. Highly effective teachers have a direct and lasting impact on our state’s economy,” said Anita Brown-Graham, director of the Institute for Emerging Issues.\

Speakers this year include former NC Governor Jim Hunt and the following national leaders:

  • Diane Ravitch, Research Professor, New York University and author of Reign of Error
  • Dan Pink, New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling author
  • Rick Hess, Director of Education Policy Studies, American Enterprise Institute
  • Bryan Hassel, Co-Director, Public Impact
  • Pasi Sahlberg, Director General, Centre for International Mobility and Cooperation in Helsinki, Finland
