Moderator Mike Petrilli will host Michael Alves, Education Planner, Alves Educational Group; Chester E. Finn, Jr., President, Thomas B. Fordham Institute; Heather Harding, Executive Director, EdCORE; and Richard D. Kahlenberg, Senior Fellow, The Century Foundation.

This discussion was inspired by an article by Petrilli, Kahlenberg and Sam Chaltain, “How D.C. Schools Can Ward Off the Big Flip
