Ralph Martire, Executive Director, Center for Tax and Budget Accountability,gave a great CFA-sponsored talk on pension funding last year. He’s back this Friday (9/30) at the YMCA on Wright Street to talk about school funding and tax structure. Ralph is one of Illinois’ best-informed experts on taxation and its effects on public education. He’s accessible and interesting to talk with. Hope to see you there at 12 noon!
His talk “Improving Equity in School Funding,” is part of the Friday Forum series, noon, September 30, University YMCA, 1001 S. Wright Street, Champaign.
The Fall 2011 Friday Forum Series “The Future of Learning; Is Public Education Under Siege?” will explore the relationship between education and society with special attention to the challenges of improving education in an era where budgets, politics, and ideology are central to the debate.
