SAS CEO Jim Goodnight to speak at Milken Institute Global Conference

Friday, April 24, 2009

Jim Goodnight, CEO of business analytics leader SAS, will don his favorite non-business role Monday: passionate global advocate for education. At the Milken Institute Global Conference in Los Angeles, he will lead a panel discussion on using technology in classrooms to engage students and lift academic performance. He will also participate in a panel on the economy, moderated by Forbes Inc. CEO Steve Forbes. 

Goodnight’s Milken appearance comes just days after he briefed US Education Secretary Arne Duncan on education technology. He specifically addressed the North Carolina 1:1 Learning Technology Initiative and SAS’ award-winning online curriculum product, SAS® Curriculum Pathways®, now available to all US educators at no cost.

Goodnight’s panel will cover policy issues that impede innovation, education funding, and issues to consider when providing students and teachers access to laptops.
