PhillyCORE Leaders says
Candidates tend to promise a lot in campaign season. So when it comes to Philly’s schools, we thought it was best not to have them do all the talking.

Join PhillyCORE Leaders in collaboration with The Next Mayor 2015 (http://www.philly.com/philly/news/politics/mayor/), Committee of Seventy (http://www.seventy.org/), Young Involved Philadelphia (http://younginvolvedphila.org/) and several longtime observers of the School District of Philadelphia for a candid conversation about education.

The following panelists will be discussing the complex challenges facing the Philly school system and what the 2015 city candidates can and cannot do to solve them:

*Former interim School District CEO, Phil Goldsmith
*Mayor’s Office of Education, Chief Education Officer, Dr. Lori Shorr
*Former State Representative, Tony Payton
*Former City Council Staffer, Justin DiBerardinis

The panel will be moderated by Research for Action's Executive Director, Kate Shaw.

Get your tickets today (http://www.eventbrite.com/e/getschooled-an-insiders-look-at-education-and-the-2015-elections-tickets-15952022930) for the panel in the Free Library Parkway Central's Skyline Room.

Afterwards, we will head to Kite & Key(1836 Callowhill Street) to keep the conversation going. All Mayoral and City Council candidates and campaign staff will be invited to both the Library and the post-event happy hour!
