Education First Compact

Monthly Speaker Series

More dialogue, not less, is what is needed to tackle our most intractable education challenges. To facilitate such dialogue, PEF convenes a monthly education speaker series, Education First Compact. From Fall through Spring, our team curates and produces sessions that attract the region’s most respected education leaders.
