Reclaiming the Promise of Public Education Conversation Series 2015-2016

Wednesday, Jun 08, 2016 | 12:15pm

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 Albert Shanker Institute and the AFT. What is important is that these participants are committed to genuine engagement with each other. Below is the list of Conversations for the upcoming school year.
