The theme of DiscussED, “The Future of Education: 2040 and Beyond,” will explore the creation of a drastically different educational experience. A new education for a new time.

Children born next year will graduate from high school in 2040, and the world they’ll enter as adults will have radically transformed. How do we prepare tomorrow’s students, especially those from underserved communities, for success in our evolving world?

Following the opening keynote for all participants, you will be invited to participate in one of our five virtual working groups to discuss potential education pathways and solutions in South Carolina. Learn more about our sessions >

As a participant, your insights will be published in a white paper that summarizes the discussions and features an actionable roadmap to help solve the educational issues of today and tomorrow. The white paper will be released during TFASC’s 10-Year Anniversary Celebration in May 2022.
