The Great Conversation

Benefit 1.png

General McLane School District families and community members: watch this series of videos titled “The Great Conversation” by Jamie Vollmer to increase your awareness of issues with and to better understand public education nationally.

Vollmer discusses topics surrounding politics, business, education and more school issues. He is a champion of public education and the president of Vollmer, Inc., working to half the erosion of public trust and build support for America’s public schools. Not an educator by profession, he entered the educational arena after working careers in law and manufacturing.

General McLane shares these videos weekly with staff members, but we want to include the community in this conversation. We hope you’ll watch and share your feedback with us.
