ABOUT LEADING MINDS
Baltimore Curriculum Project’s Leading Minds
series invites national education leaders
to engage local stakeholders in a discussion of controversial
topics that have direct relevance to improving K-12
education. These national experts will bring innovative
ideas and shed light on issues that have received inadequate
attention to date.
Through this initiative we will spark a more
expansive policy dialogue among business, education, government,
and nonprofit leaders – influencing policy to improve
educational opportunities and outcomes for all students. Leading
Minds will broaden the education community’s knowledge
of current policy issues and strengthen its commitment to making
our schools more effective.
