Panel tonight: educating workers for the 21st century

Feb 12, 2013

Stop by the Providence Athenaeum at 6 p.m. tonight! We'll be discussing how schools are changing to prepare students for 21st Century jobs.

I'm looking forward to a spirited conversation about what skills students will need as technology quickly transforms the world around us. We'll explore the value of a liberal arts degree, changes to curriculum in K-12 schools and what employers are seeking and finding in Rhode Island graduates. Join us!

The panelists are:

David Abbott, Deputy Rhode Island Commissioner of Education

Katherine Bergeron, Dean of the College at Brown University

John Hazen White, Jr., President of Taco, Inc.

Steven Kitchin, Vice President for Corporate Education and Training at New England Institute of Technology
