Eggs & Issues Breakfast

Each year, The Public School Forum gathers hundreds of business, education, and government leaders in Raleigh to talk about the most pressing education issues facing our state. Now in its third year, the annual Eggs & Issues Breakfast is an opportunity for the organization to release its Top Ten Education Issues for the year.

Eggs & Issues 2017

On January 25, 2017, the Public School Forum of North Carolina will hosted its 3rd Annual Eggs & Issues Breakfast at Marbles Kids Museum in Raleigh. This special event began in 2015 to showcase the Forum’s release of its annual Top Ten Education Issues – our unique take on the state’s most pressing issues in education.

The 2017 Eggs & Issues Breakfast featured a special taping of Education Matters, the Forum’s weekly television show that airs on WRAL-TV. Our special guest for the show was Governor Roy Cooper, who sat down for a one-on-one discussion with Forum President & Executive Director and Education Matters host Keith Poston.

The Eggs & Issues Breakfast is one of the most anticipated education events each new year with a sellout crowd of over 200 members of the business community, educators, and government representatives attending.
