LBJ Future Forum: Race and the Future of Texas Public Education, Feb. 21, 2018, 6:30PM

I am looking forward to attending this Future Forum on Wednesday, February 21st at the LBJ Presidential Library Atrium on the 10th floor.  Aside from the topic, which is of immense importance, I am glad to see one of our Education Policy and Planning (EPP) doctoral students, Greg Worthington, on the panel.  Please register online (see below).  

Consider liking EPP on Facebook.
