Faculty Scholarship: Dr. Heilig to share perspectives on education reform in Beijing

Sacramento State Professor and Director of the Doctorate in Educational Leadership program Dr. Julian Vasquez Heilig will travel to Beijing, China to participate in the China-U.S. Education Think Tank Dialogue June 7-9. China’s Ministry of Education and National Institute of Education Sciences have invited about 100 policymakers, administrators, researchers and practitioners from the two nations to share educational research, and discuss education policy and reform as part of the cross-national dialogue.

Dr. Heilig will speak on “What instead? How we reframe the debate about education reform,” which will review contemporary efforts to “reform” education by encouraging competition and privatization of public institutions.
