The State of the Union is one of the most important speeches of the year. What will it mean for education in 2014?
On Wednesday, January 29 at Noon ET, Jeff Livingston, senior vice president of education policy at McGraw-Hill Education, will hold a Twitter chat to discuss President Obama’s State of the Union address from an education perspective. The chat will likely touch on topics such as education technology, early childhood education, educational standards, and college and career readiness. The event will be moderated by Caitlin Emma, education reporter at POLITICO Pro.
