Local education leaders and legislative representatives will present a public forum on the latest education "hot topics."

Superintendents of the Livingston, Millburn, South-Orange/Maplewood, Summit, and West Orange school districts are co-hosting a discussion of the education issues that are being considered in Trenton. The event will be held:

Wednesday, November 30
7:30 to 9 p.m.
Mount Pleasant Middle School
11 Broadlawn Drive, Livingston

The main topics to be discussed are Charter Schools, Vouchers, Tenure Reform, and Teacher Evaluation. After a summary of the topics by the superintendents, elected officials from both the 21st and 27th legislative districts will share their perspectives on the pending legislation on these issues.

The legislators will then form a panel for an interactive Q&A session with the audience.  Moderating the forum will be John Mooney, education reporter and founder of NJ Spotlight.

"We encourage the public to attend this very informative event," said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Nathan Parker, who will be one of the speakers. "The legislation on these issues being considered in Trenton will have an impact that will significantly impact our school. It is important that the public be informed."
