Milwaukee Public Schools Superintendent Driver goes “On the Issues” to discuss challenges, vision for district’s future
Driver came to MPS two years ago to become the district’s first chief innovation officer.
MILWAUKEE – Milwaukee Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Darienne Driver will be the featured guest of an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Tuesday, Jan. 27, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.
Driver is faced with several challenges in her new role at MPS, including improving student graduation rates and test scores, competing for students with voucher and charter schools and changing public perceptions about the district. But in a recent interview, she called this an “exciting time for education” in Milwaukee. Driver will share her vision for MPS during this visit to Marquette Law School.
Seating is limited; registration is available online. For those who can’t attend in person, a “watch now” button on the registration page will provide access to a live video stream.
Gousha, an award-winning television journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.
Through the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, public lectures by leading scholars and topical conferences — all open to the community — the Law School serves as a venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
