Transforming Education in Rhode Island

"Transforming Education in Rhode Island"

Deborah Gist, RI Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education to speak at the ALN public forum on Thursday, July 22, to be held at CCRI, Newport, from
6:30-8:00 p.m.

Ms. Deborah A. Gist will provide an overview of the significant progress her Department's made since she began her tenure as the Rhode Island Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education just a year ago.

As Commissioner Gist states, "Rhode Island has made progress in improving its education system, yet we all can agree that we must do much more to improve performance for all of our students. In particular, we must address our achievement gaps. If we want great schools across Rhode Island - the best in the world - then we are responsible for creating that greatness - all of us. I am ready to link arms with educators, leaders, and residents throughout the state to bring a true education renaissance to Rhode Island."

Ms. Gist has been recently recognized as one of the '100 Most Influential People' byTime magazine...
