Lawyers Square off on Education Reform

Tennessee Commissioner of Education Kevin Huffman and social justice advocate Oona Chatterjee with the Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University will discuss education reform at an event Wednesday at Vanderbilt University Law School. Huffman and Chatterjee both graduated from New York University School of Law in 1998 and have spent their careers working on school reform, though from different vantage points. The event, which will begin at 7 p.m. in the Flynn Auditorium, will be moderated by Vanderbilt Law Professor Terry Maroney, who also attended law school with the speakers. On Tuesday, Chatterjee will speak at 5 p.m. on how lawyers can make a difference early in their careers. Both events are presented by the law school’s Social Justice Program and are free and open to the public.
