The new series will explore statewide issues of critical importance and begins with six, monthly, one-hour panel discussions about education issues including: Common Core standards, teacher evaluation, school financing, achievement gaps, testing and opting out, and legal challenges.

Susan Arbetter, WCNY director of news and public affairs and host of “The Capitol Pressroom” will serve as host on the new show, and will moderate a panel conversation with NYS Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia.
