Some of the most critical policy decisions affecting the future of every Montanan are the local, state, and federal commitments made to education at all levels. Many argue that access to educational opportunities is the principal ingredient in breaking the cycle of poverty among our poorest families, responding to the rapidly changing technical demands of new and evolving jobs, and adding value to both the services and products offered by Montanans. If we can no longer be seen as insulated from other states within our region, the nation, or the world, then what commitments must be made if Montana's educational system is going to create the opportunity for Montanans to be competitive in the 21st century? The Burton K. Wheeler Center's Fall Conference will focus on the most pressing questions to be faced by educators, legislators, administrators, business interests, parents and students. How can we and how will we rethink education in this century?
