The Hoover Institution hosted "Three Hoover Fellows on NAEP, A Nation at Risk, and the Future of Education Reform" on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 from 1:30pm - 3:00pm EST.

This month, the U.S. Department of Education released the latest results of the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP), which told us how fourth- and eighth-grade students are faring nationally, in every state, and in most big cities in math and reading. This month also marks the thirty-fifth anniversary of A Nation at Risk.

To recognize these two momentous occasions, join the Hoover Institution, the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, and Education Next on April 25 from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. for a look at ed reform’s progress since the 1980s, as well as an examination of what the latest NAEP scores mean for America’s future economic growth and social vibrancy. Three distinguished Hoover Fellows, Chester E. Finn Jr., Eric Hanushek, and Paul E. Peterson will join Fordham's Amber Northern to reflect on these events and what the next generation of education reform might portend.

You can also follow the conversation on Twitter with @HooverInst@educationgadfly@EducationNext, and #FutureofEdReform.
