May 4th, 2020 marked 40 years since the day that the federal Department of Education opened its doors. The cabinet-level agency is no longer in its infancy; Americans have four decades of data on academic outcomes by which to measure its impact on our children. Teachers and school leaders also have 40 years by which they can measure the Department’s impact on their working lives. Taxpayers have the billions of dollars they have financed to assess the impact of the Department through an economic lens. What is the history of the Department and its legacy forty years after its creation? What should the future hold for the Department of Education? Join us for a discussion with education experts on this notable anniversary.
