Original Event Post:
The public is invited to all Hot Topic meetings to become informed on a wide variety of topics. It is a time to check in with members of The League of Women Voters, make new friends, and invite your neighbors and colleagues to experience the League in an informal setting.
On November 25th, 2019 our speaker will be Dr. Dan RIch on "Opportunities and Challenges for Delaware Public Education Now."
Dr. Daniel Rich is a University Professor of Public Policy at the University of Delaware and Director of the University’s Community Engagement Initiative. He also serves as Policy Director for the Redding Consortium for Educational Equality. While focused on Wilmington and New Castle County, the Redding Consortium will address issues and options that impact educational equity and outcomes statewide. Dr. Rich specializes in education policy.
