The 2011-12 Notre Dame Forum, “Reimagining School: To Nurture the Soul of a Nation,” will present a number of events this fall, beginning this month with an address by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and a panel discussion featuring four leading figures in American education.
Gov. Bush, founder of the Foundation for Excellence in Education, will deliver the keynote address and lead an interactive discussion titled “The Architect: Radical Education Reform for the 21st Century,” on Sept. 26 (Monday) at 7 p.m. in the Leighton Concert Hall of Notre Dame’s DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. In his talk, Gov. Bush will explore the dramatically changing landscape of K-12 education, as well as how the Notre Dame community can play a vital role in providing vision and leadership in crafting a vibrant education sector for all children.
