The ED Sessions
Sir Ken Robinson speech:
7 p.m., Wednesday, on KTVB
Live forum:
8 p.m. - 10 p.m., Wednesday, on KTVB

Education is a hot topic across the country as every state in the union is questioning the education system.  Thousands of citizens are newly engaged in the process.  But how do we translate passion and interest into lasting progress for Idaho?

KTVB and the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation are hoping to jumpstart the conversation about education with The ED Sessions.

The goal?  To prepare every Idahoan to meet the extraordinary challenges of living and working in the 21st century.

The ED Sessions will feature three speakers who are well known voices on education, training, and self-fulfillment. 

The first session, featuring Sir Ken Robinson, will take place Tuesday, September 27 at the Egyptian Theatre.  This session is sold out to attend, but it will be broadcast Wednesday at 7 p.m. on KTVB.

Following the speech, Dee Sarton will moderate a forum in which you can get involved.  During the forum, Maggie O'Mara will be encouraging you to get involved via social media.  If you have a question you want addressed in the forum, ask it here: The ED Sessions, or via Twitter using the hashtag #EdSessions.
