Closing the Global Gap

The complex issue of education in a global era

In America today we face a persistent achievement gap in our schools. How can we remove the barriers and allow for creativity to enable a modern, globally competitive system of education? Can we learn from efforts in other countries to try new and innovative models?

The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, Under-Told Stories Project and Hendrickson Institute for Ethical Leadership present a two-day forum focused on youth education in Minnesota, across the United States and around the globe.

This two-day forum will deliver a digest of the latest reporting on issues associated with population growth, and will be presented at two Saint Mary’s University campuses:
