More than 100 educators from across the country will gather to discuss the critical financial issues facing schools at Fordham’s fifth National Institute on School Finance, June 25-29, 113 West 60th St., 12th floor, faculty lounge. “This year’s School Finance Institute explores two key and sometimes opposing concepts in education: excellence and equity,” says institute director Bruce S. Cooper, Ph.D., professor and vice chair in the division of administration, policy and urban education at Fordham. “How resources are used provides insight into a society’s priorities, beliefs and desires, and the funding of our nation’s schools and the education of our children are no different.” The institute will explore many issues facing educators, including efficiency, productivity, school choice and teacher compensation. Several prominent individuals from the worlds of business and education will be delivering lectures, including school assessment expert William L. Sanders, Ph.D., of SAS (formerly known as Statistical Analysis System). DATE: TIME: JUNE 25-27 4 P.M. – 9 P.M JUNE 28 AND 29 9 A.M. – 5 P.M. PLACE: FORDHAM UNIVERSITY 113 WEST 60TH STREET, 12TH FLOOR, FACULTY LOUNGE NEW YORK, N.Y.
