Debate: The Future of Education in Kansas City

Monday, Feb. 23, 2015, from 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

The Federalist Society invites you and your friends, family and colleagues to attend a panel discussion, co-sponsored by the Show-Me Institute, in which we will debate the path forward for education in our community. 

Should your ZIP code determine your educational choices? Do charter schools improve academic outcomes? What do local public schools need to succeed? Should tax credit scholarships be used to help students attend private schools? Should residents in struggling public schools get to transfer to neighboring districts?

These topics and more will be explored as our panelists debate the future of education in and around Kansas City, Mo.

The panel will feature the following influencers in the local education landscape:

  • James Shuls, Ph.D., Distinguished Fellow, Show Me-Institute, and Assistant Professor at University of Missouri—St. Louis
  • Dr. Amy Hartsfield, Member-at-Large, School Board, Kansas City Public Schools
  • Andrea Flinders, President, Kansas City Federation of Teachers, Local 691
  • Douglas Thaman, Ed.D., Executive Director, Missouri Charter Public School Association
  • John Murphy, Public Policy Committee Chair of the Missouri Catholic Conference

Admission is FREE, but please register below so we can ensure there is enough seating. The event is scheduled from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 23, 2015, at The Kansas City Club, 908 Baltimore Ave., Kansas City, MO 64105.

Join us for drinks (cash bar) and conversation after the event. We will be extending invitations across the education community, so it should be a great opportunity to meet people interested in the future of education in Kansas City.
