Top educators and researchers will share insights into the necessary changes needed by the American education system while offering ideas how these challenges can be met. Video presentations from Sir Ken Robinson and Daniel Pink will highlight how creativity can be cultivated in children in order to acknowledge multiple types of intelligence. All students, parents, teachers, administrators and interested community members are invited to join this co-creative community dialogue. This event is free and open to the public but seating is limited and registration is strongly suggested at http://www.21stcenturylearning.eventbrite.com.

The SNC /LTS discussion series is exploring depictions of the American school system from provocative, at times opposing, perspectives with the intent to start and support an on-going dialogue among the audience. Facilitators from both schools lead post-film discussions designed to create positive dialogue about the challenges facing education reform in the U.S.
