Ladson-Billings to deliver University Roundtable talk on dwindling public support for public education

September 26, 2017
UW-Madison's Gloria Ladson-Billings will lead one of the monthly University Roundtable luncheon presentations, titled "Is There Still a Public for Public Education?"

Ladson-Billings is the Kellner Family Distinguished Chair in Urban Education and is a professor with the departments of Curriculum and Instruction, Educational Policy Studies, and Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis.

A major challenge of today is an evacuation of the public sphere, with public education being "one of the last remaining institutions being supported by the public." In the talk, Ladson-Billings will question whether this support is dwindling and "discuss the signs there may not be a public for public education."

The luncheon will be held Nov. 15 in Varsity Hall at Union South from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a cost of $12. The reservation deadline is November 8 by noon. Register here: http://go.wisc.edu/9j7212
