Governor Kitzhaber last year began a program to redesign education in Oregon: its structure, content and most of all its outcomes. In February we will learn the details of the Governor's program, the research behind it, how a major employer views change in education, and a Portland educator's views on accomplishing its goals.
- Ben Cannon, Education Policy Advisor to Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber, Rhodes Scholar and former Oregon State Representative.
- John Tapogna, President, ECONorthwest, author of the analysis that is the foundation for much of the Governor’s program.
- Maureen Fallt, leads workforce planning efforts for Portland General Electric and administers management development and diversity programs for the company.
- Robert C. Stewart, Superintendent of the Gladstone School District, founder of the Gladstone Center for Children and Families.
