Heading To The Network For Public Education Conference In Austin

I'm winging my way to the Network for Public Education (NPE) National Conference at the University of Texas, Austin. A few days of panels, speakers and getting together with some of the heavy hitters in progressive education. I'll be sitting on a panel, "Charters, Virtuals and Privatization." TUSD Superintendent H.T. Sanchez will be joining other superintendents in a discussion about district leadership. Tucson's Robin Hiller (Voices for Education), one of the founders and directors of NPE, will also be participating in a panel (Sorry, can't remember which.)

The Conference will be live streamed, so interested folks can tune in 9:30am-5:30pm Saturday and 9am-2:15pm Sunday. Keynote speeches: Saturday, 1-2:15pm (John Kuhn and Karen Lewis) and Sunday 10:30am-noon (Diane Ravitch). That's all in Austin time. Adjust accordingly.
