Museums and libraries serve more than 50 million students annually and are some of the most revered and trusted sources of information, content, and collections around. In addition, museums and libraries generate billions in economic activity and employ hundreds of thousands of people. Ronald Reagan's Nation at Risk points out that "at the heart of the Learning Society are educational opportunities extending far beyond the traditional institutions of learning, our schools, and colleges. They extend into homes and workplaces, into libraries, art galleries, museums, and science centers, and indeed, into every place where the individual can develop and mature in work and life.” Despite this, museums, libraries and other institutions of “informal learning” are often left out of broader education reform conversations. Join Anthony Pennay, Chief Learning Officer of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Insitute, as we explore why including these institutions is vital to the creation of a Learning Society and how it can be done.
