Co-sponsored with the American Federation of Teachers and held the second Wednesday of every month during the school year, this series is designed to engender lively and informative conversations on important educational issues. We deliberately invites speakers with diverse perspectives, including views other than those of the AFT and the Albert Shanker Institute.
