Levine, Arthur; Swail, Watson Scott
Educational Policy Institute
On March 21 2013, the "Educational Policy Institute" held the first day of the EPI Forum on Education & the Economy in Orlando, Florida. The Forum was designed to discuss critical issues related to the nexus of education and the workforce. This document presents the transcribed session that featured two of the authors of the Teachers College Press publication, "Finding Superman: Debating the Future of Public Schools in America" (2012). The book was a response to Davis Guggenheim's documentary, "Waiting for "Superman,"" released in 2010. Watson Scott Swail, President and CEO of the Educational Policy Institute, served as editor of the book and wrote the introductory chapter, "Finding Superman". Arthur Levine, President of the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, wrote a chapter titled "The Potential Impact of Waiting for "Superman" on Schooling in America." The Forum provided an opportunity to talk about their respective chapters and engage in an interesting conversation about education and international competition.
