You need look no further than this weekend's New York Times for evidence that the pension crisis continues to loom large. States are thrilled to see budget surpluses as the economy picks up, but they are finding those dollars already overdue to the pension piper.
With an ever increasing share of education dollars going toward teacher pensions, something has got to give -- but what? Is there a way out? Join NCTQ and the Fordham Institute for a lively discussion of the teacher pension problem this Thursday, June 6 at 10:00 am.
The panel includes Charles Zogby, Pennsylvania Secretary of the Budget; Josh McGee of the Laura and John Arnold Foundation; Leo Casey of the Shanker Institute and NCTQ's Sandi Jacobs. Checker Finn will moderate.
