During the group's October forum discussion on Global Restructuring, we briefly touched on the topic of retraining the displaced workforce after the current economic downturn. This led to concerns over our current education system generally, both for children and adult learners. Dan Swinney of the Center for Labor and Community Research has agreed to join in our discussion forum as a guest. Short pre-reading materials help you participate more fully in the conversation. Registration is limited to 20 people so that everyone has ample opportunity to participate.
