A University of Utah forum will host Lily Eskelsen, vice-president of the national teachers’ union the National Education Association, to discuss how the fate of public education may change after this election.---

Elections decide winners and losers out of candidates all over the country vying to represent their communities. But it’s not just politicians who win or lose -- this election could prove a crucial contest also for our country’s public-education system. Will teachers’ unions be punished by conservative politicians or a Mitt Romney presidency?

Are there reforms that can be made to improve educators’ performance? Is there more that can be done to hold bad teachers accountable, or is it matter of funding and planning? You can lob these questions and more at NEA boss Eskelsen at this free public forum being held Thursday at the U's Hinckley Institute of Politics.

Check it out at the University of Utah, 260 S. Central Campus Drive, Oct. 18, 10:45 - 11:45 a.m.
