Media seminar for reporters to feature experts in education
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 1, 2009
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Public K-12 education involves far more than just the "Three Rs." Schools are trying to address the financial problems posed by that fourth "R" -- recession -- while still meeting the need to educate students for an increasingly interrelated world.
The Indiana University School of Education has organized "Issues in Education," a one-day seminar for education reporters. Seminar presentations and discussions feature experts on relevant topics offering information to help reporters tackle the complex issues involved with educating Indiana's children, as well as students nationwide.
Faculty experts will draw from their research and service as they discuss topics including the state budget and schools, the growth of Chinese language education, and education issues before the legislature. The casual setting will allow for an easy exchange between reporters and faculty. Reporters will be able to get sound bites, quotes, contacts and a deeper understanding of some of the challenging issues of the day.
The seminar will be July 24 in Room CE 148 of the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis Campus Center, 420 University Blvd., at IUPUI. Presentations will run from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The $15 registration fee includes beverages and snacks. You can download the registration form here.
For more information about this seminar, please contact: Chuck Carney, director of communications and media relations for the Indiana University School of Education, at 812-856-8027 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you on July 24 and discussing some of the challenging "Issues in Education."
