The Minneapolis Foundation would like to invite you to a special Minnesota Meeting live web broadcast featuring a gubernatorial debate on P – 12 education. This event is co-sponsored by the Itasca Project and the Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi Foundation for Children.
Gubernatorial Debate on P – 12 Education
September 23, 2010
5:00 – 6:00 pm
We are partnering with Twin Cities Public Television for this special Minnesota Meeting event. It will be broadcast live on the web from TPT (before a small studio audience) and will air on a later date.
We have invited major candidates Tom Horner, Tom Emmer, and Mark Dayton to the debate. And well-known TPT and Minnesota Public Radio personality Cathy Wurzer, will moderate. Each candidate will have the opportunity for opening and closing comments in the context of a free flowing format without timed answers. An advisory committee comprised of the full array of educational interests will prepare questions to be posed to candidates, intermixed with questions from the audience.
Our primary objective is to help inform Minnesota’s electorate about each candidate’s vision for Minnesota’s education system by exploring the range of complex issues that influence policies and decisions. We look forward to a dynamic conversation focused on what it will take to move Minnesota forward as a premier education state.
