WBOI Presents: An Issues & Ales conversation about education

Issues & Ales Education 2022

This week, we are listening to the first conversation from the return of WBOI’s Issues & Ales. Our own Ella Abbott moderated a panel discussion about education issues in northeast Indiana. The panel was followed by a Q&A with the audience.

How will teaching through the pandemic shape education going forward? How are students faring? What were some of the possible impacts of education bills introduced in the General Assembly? We’ll have the answers to those questions and more on WBOI Presents.

Our panelists were Anne Duff, president of Fort Wayne Community Schools Board of Trustees, Phil Downs, director of education, graduate programs and accreditation at Trine University, and Sandra Vohs, president of the Fort Wayne Education Association.
