3/18/11 ASHLAND, OH -- Bruce Hunter, associate executive director of The American Association of School Administrators, headquartered in Washington, D.C., will be visiting Ashland University on Wednesday, March 23.
Hunter, who is one of the strongest advocates of public education in the halls of Congress and a nationally sought after speaker on educational issues at the national level, will speak as part of a public presentation being held at 6:15 p.m. in the Ronk Lecture Hall in the Dwight Schar College of Education building.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will center on the topic of federal plans for education. In describing what he would like to discuss at the public session, Hunter states, "Congress is uncertain about education. They aren't clear about their role in education and uncertain as to how to provide funding to schools."
Hunter also will speak to a group of school administrators during the morning of March 23 as well as to a Doctoral Institutional Law and Policy class.
Hunter has more than 20 years of experience working for the improvement of education. He has been on a first name basis with hundreds of Congressmen and Senators and is acknowledged to be one of the most effective voices speaking on behalf of students in the Capital.
Hunter is a former superintendent in his home state of Wyoming. He has had extensive experience in all aspects of educational policy and politics at the local, state and national levels.
