ARLINGTON - State Rep. Diane Patrick will host a
discussion about the future of
education in Texas, specifically student transition and accountability, when
she hosts her Fourth Annual Education Policy Summit at The University of Texas
at Arlington. The event will be held at 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 25, 2010, in the E.H.
Hereford University Center’s Bluebonnet Ballroom, 300 W. First St.
A panel discussion will feature UT
Arlington President James D. Spaniolo, Tarrant County College Southeast President
Judith Carrier, and Arlington school district Superintendent Jerry McCullough. Jeanne
Gerlach, dean of the UT Arlington College of Education and Health Professions,
will moderate the discussion.
Patrick, R-Arlington, is a longtime
educator herself, said she hopes the summit will equip people with information
about programs that successfully move students through the education system,
from pre-school to post-graduation studies. Attendees will be invited to ask
questions during breakout sessions that will follow the panel discussion.
Before being elected to the Texas House in
2006, Patrick served on the State Board of Education. She was a faculty member
at UT Arlington from 1994-2007, and she also has taught at Texas Christian
