Reclaiming the Promise of Public Education Conversation Series, 2014-2015

Wednesday, Apr 08, 2015 | 11:45am

Sponsored by the Albert Shanker Institute and the American Federation of Teachers, this conversation series is designed to engender lively and informative discussions on important educational issues. We deliberately invite speakers with diverse perspectives, including views other than those of the AFT and the Albert Shanker Institute. What is important is that these participants are committed to genuine engagement with each other.
