In August 2011, Education Next and the Program on Education Policy and Governance co-hosted a conference to examine whether U.S. students are ready to compete in a global economy. Speakers included federal, state, and local policymakers, as well as education professionals and academics from the U.S. and abroad. Below is a collection of more than 100 photos from the conference, which was held at the Harvard Kennedy School.
For a full report on this conference read “The International Experience: What the U.S. can and cannot learn from other countries” by Carlos Lastra-Anadón and Paul E. Peterson.
