ICYMI, here are the resources from ECS’s National Forum on Education Policy held last week in DC. The conference brings together policymakers, educators, academics, researchers, and many more to discuss everything from early childcare to higher education, and EdNC’s Molly Osborne was there. In particular, she recommends checking out the following presentations:

  • Michelle Weise, Chief Innovation Officer at Strada Institute, on the future of work
  • Dr. James Johnson, Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship and Director, Urban Investment Strategies Center at UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School, on six disruptive demographic trends (to download his presentation, go to the resources page and select Friday opening plenary)

To see more from the forum, check out Molly on Twitter @mosborne917 or search the hashtag #ECSNF18.
