Through the Let’s Talk Education speaker series, GEA seeks to build a common understanding of educational issues grounded in research and experience because an informed community can advocate for all of its students. GEA connects local and state experts with the wider community to talk about the issues that shape education policy and planning.

During these morning sessions, we’ll provide hot coffee, a light breakfast and balanced information. You provide the good conversation! Sessions are free and open to all.
