Two more days to RSVP to this event: The Allegheny Institute Welcomes Mayor John O. Norquist

On February 13th the Allegheny Institute welcomes Mayor John O. Norquist, a leader in national discussions of vouchers in education. Mayor Norquist’s talk is entitled “Improving Pittsburgh Public Schools: Are Vouchers an Answer?”

Mayor Norquist won four terms as Milwaukee’s mayor and compiled an impressive record of streamlining city government, improving public safety, and spurring job growth. But perhaps his greatest accomplishment is overseeing the implementation of school choice for Milwaukee’s students. Milwaukee’s voucher system began in 1991 with only 1,500 students and has grown to benefit nearly 12,000 students annually.

Norquist’s strong advocacy of school choice has made him a nationally recognized and sought after expert in the school choice movement. We hope you will make plans to attend this important presentation.

The lecture will take place at the Doubletree Hotel—Pittsburgh City Center, which is located at One Bigelow Square. The lecture will begin at 7:00 PM. We ask that you make reservations at your earliest convenience.

Admission is free but tickets will be required to attend. Please call 412-440-0079 by February 6th to reserve your seat.
