Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Nov. 2 -- "The Future of Public Education"

A talk by Dr. Eugene White, Superintendent of Indianapolis Publis Schools

When: Wednesday 2 November, 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Where: North United Methodist Church, N. Meridian St. at 38th St. Indianapolis

No one is more important to the future of public education in Indianapolis than the new Superintendent of IPS, Dr. Eugene White. Check out the interview from last month’s NUVO for a sense of his vision. This talk will address questions such as whether public education has a future (I think he’ll say “yes”); what will be the effects of such factors as standardized testing, private and charter schools, home schooling, language barriers, broken families, and disciplinary problems. Should be a good one.
