San Jose's mayoral contenders will share their views on the city's educational needs at a forum next week.
The event is sponsored by the Santa Clara County Board of Education and will take place May 10 at the Mexican Heritage Plaza. San Jose State University Professor Emeritus Terry Christensen will moderate the discussion on topics ranging from early childhood education to the quality of public schools and the burgeoning charter school movement.
The audience will also have a chance to submit questions.
All candidates were invited to participate. Confirmed so far are City Council members Sam Liccardo and Rose Herrera and Supervisor Dave Cortese.
