The Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) is pleased to announce its fall 2010 Askwith Forums, a series of public lectures dedicated to discussing challenges facing education, sharing new knowledge, and generating spirited conversation. Highlights this fall will include a talk by Disney/ABC Television President Anne Sweeney, Ed.M.’80, an advance screening of the highly anticipated film Waiting for “Superman”, and a conversation about the 35th anniversary of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act moderated by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews.

The Askwith Forums, which are free and open to the public, attract more than 2,500 attendees each year. The series provides an opportunity for practitioners, policymakers, and researchers to share their work, talk with one another, and advance proven practices that will improve learning opportunities for all children.
