Money Matters: Forum Looks at
Wealth and School Success

California State University, Sacramento will present a forum on "Wealth, Poverty and the Future of Education in California" from 2 to 4 p.m., Wednesday, May 2 in the University Union Hinde Auditorium.

The event will focus on the educational status of economically disadvantaged students.

Panelists will offer their perspectives on the possibility of all students having equal opportunity in the classroom. Panelists will include Assemblyman Darrell Steinberg; Susanna Cooper, associate editor at the Sacramento Bee; Wanda Shironaka, principal of Fruitridge Elementary School; and Tascha Hill, fourth-grade teacher at Mark Hopkins Elementary School. CSUS education professor Ken Futernick will moderate.

"The issue of access to quality education for all students, especially the economically disadvantaged, is an increasing concern of the educational community," Futurnick says.

The first hour of the forum will be an open discussion among the panelists in which they will offer their views on the issue and offer solutions. The second hour will provide an opportunity for the audience to respond and ask questions.

This event is free. More information is available by contacting the CSUS College of Education at (916) 278-6155. Media assistance is available by contacting the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
