MILWAUKEE — Dr. Keith Posley, the interim superintendent of Milwaukee Public Schools, will be the featured guest in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Wednesday, Sept. 26, at 12:15 p.m. in the Lubar Center at Marquette University Law School’s Eckstein Hall.
With the departure of former superintendent Darienne Driver, the state’s largest school district is now under new leadership. Posley was the chief school administration officer for MPS before being named interim superintendent. He has been with the district since 1990, having also served as an elementary school teacher, assistant principal and principal. What are Posley’s plans for MPS, and what needs to be done to improve student performance? Posley will discuss these issues and more during his visit to the Law School.
Gousha, an award-winning broadcast journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.
Through public programming such as the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, Gousha’s “On the Issues” conversations with newsmakers, public lectures by leading scholars and conferences on significant issues of public importance, the Law School serves as the region’s leading venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
The event is open to members of the general public at no cost; registration is required and is available online. Members of the media who are interested in attending should contact Chris Jenkins in the Office of Marketing and Communication.
