Mark the calendar for October 4, 2018. Dr. Michael D. Usdan, the senior fellow of The Institute for Educational Leadership, will discuss “America’s Future: Some Perspectives on the Role of Education“ at 6:00 p.m. in St. John’s Church. 

Dr. Usdan, who was a staff member of the late Dr. James B. Conant in famous studies on American education, taught at Columbia University, City University of New York, Northwestern, and Fordham Universities. After serving as President of the Institute for Educational Leadership (IEL) from 1981 through 2001, he became a Senior Fellow at the organization.

Several themes dominate his writing: problems relating to urban education, the relationship of government and politics to education, and the growing interest in developing closer relationships between elementary-secondary and higher education.  A consultant to local and state boards of education and educational organization throughout the country, he has spoken at and participated in meetings within the country and internationally.

This discussion with Dr. Usdan is part of Georgetown Village’s fall speaker series on Significant Contemporary Issues. Refreshments will be served and space is limited so please RSVP to lynn@Georgetown-village.org or 202 999-8988 by no later than October 1.
