The Cambridge Education Association will sponsor a public forum and debate for School Committee candidates from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Oct. 3 at the Cambridge Public Library’s Central Square Branch, 45 Pearl St.

Candidates will be asked questions based on responses to a questionnaire each has been sent – some specific to individual candidates and some for all. Candidates will have one minute to answer, and each will be allowed a 90-second closing statement. CCTV will tape the forum for broadcast.
