PROVIDENCE – A brainstorming session next month on how best to develop a 10-year plan for improving Rhode Island’s public schools will include state officials, educators, business leaders, parents, students and other members of the community.

Hosted by the Rhode Island Foundation’s Long-Term Education Planning Committee, ‘Make it Happen: World-Class Public Education for RI’ will take place December 7 at the Rhode Island Convention Center.

Rhode Island’s Education Commissioner Angélica M. Infante-Green is expected to attend.

Members of the Long-Term Education Planning Committee, which was created in late 2018, will lead the event. Along with Infante-Green, the group includes the state’s chair of the board of education, labor leaders, representatives from higher education and public and charter schools, business leaders and nonprofits.

Following presentations, breakout sessions are planned to allow attendees to discuss how to enact strategies outlined by the committee.
