This week at the 4th Street Forum: For their first time out on the road, the 4th Street Forum landed in cushy chairs, right in front of the fireplace at UW-Milwaukee's Fireside Lounge. In an appropriate setting, they took on higher education in Wisconsin, a topic that becomes increasingly relevant in the shifting job landscape. Are our colleges affordable? Is the education worth the cost? And what direction are we moving in?

Hear remarks from the distinguished group of panelists, including Kathleen O'Brien (Senior VP for Academic Affairs at Alverno), Vicki Martin (Interim President of MATC), Caroline Williams (Director of School Counseling at MPS), and Joan Prince (Vice Chancellor of Partnerships and Innovation at UW-Milwaukee):

Catch this episode of 4th Street Forum on Friday at 10PM and Sunday morning at 9am on Milwaukee Public Television (Channel 10.1).

The 4th Street Forum is back next week with "Seniors, Health Care, & End-Of-Life Integrity." In the last six months of life can high quality, compassionate care co-exist with reasonable cost to Medicare? Do seniors have anything to fear from health care reform?

More information on the 4th Street Forum is available at their website. You can also check out the embarrassment of riches that is their video archives here .
