Athens, Ga. – Hank Huckaby, the new chancellor of the University System of Georgia, and Arthur Levine, former president of Teachers College, Columbia University, are among the speakers at the University of Georgia College of Education’s fourth annual State of Education Conference, Sept. 15-16.

National educational reform advocate Andrew Rotherham and Georgia State School Superintendent John Barge also will address the group. In addition, the conference will feature more than a dozen UGA faculty members and other experts presenting and discussing trends and issues related to P-16 education in nine breakout sessions.

The conference opens Sept. 15 with three speakers, all in Mahler Auditorium of the Georgia Center for Continuing Education:

n  Levine will speak at 8:30 a.m.

n  Barge will speak at 10 a.m.

n  Huckaby will speak at 2 p.m.

Rotherham is co-founder and partner of Bellwether Education, a non-profit organization working to improve educational outcomes for all students and writer of the blog Eduwonk. He will speak on Sept. 16, at 8:30 a.m. in Mahler Auditorium.

The UGA College of Education launched the conference three years ago as an opportunity to bring together teachers, teacher educators, elected officials, civic and business leaders, and concerned citizens to learn more about the top education issues facing the state.  The conference is open to the public. Registration cost is $115 for the full conference (all sessions and Thursday’s luncheon).
