Have you thought about going to Diane Ravitch’s NPE conference this year? I am thinking about it. They will have workshops on community activities to spread the word on improving public education. This is the kind of thing we are doing in Gainesville. Maybe we could all get together and share strategies. Here is a link to the conference announcement.
THE NPE CONFERENCE IS IN RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA APRIL 16, 17
SHARE THE POST WITH THOSE WHO ARE IN THE TRENCHES WITH US!
Can you help us? Can we help you? Shall we get together in Raleigh?
We are working with our PTAs, meeting with legislators, speaking at community organizations, working with school board members, holding forums, writing newspaper articles…..lots of things. We recognize we need to hone our messages so others will listen more carefully. We know we need to listen carefully to others to find common ground.
