As some of you may have heard, Diane Ravitch is unable to join us on May 1st to discuss her new book. And while we’re disappointed and hope she recovers quickly, I wanted to let you know that the event will go on, and the organizers have already confirmed a very exciting lineup of speakers!
Come join the national movement to save our public schools! Chicago Teachers union president Karen Lewis and Texas school superintendent John Kuhn headline a rally in Wisconsin to beat back the assault on public education!
Thursday, May 1, 2014, Monona Terrace, Madison.
Grassroots networking social: 5:30-6:45. Program begins at 7:00.
Please spread the word and plan to be there for this important event!
If you would like to reserve a table for the networking event, please contact Andrea Potter
at the Progressive: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see you there!
See below for the announcement from Edgewood College Dean of Education Tim Slekar:
I received an email from Diane Ravitch last night. Late last week Diane fell and damaged her knee. She has to have a knee replacement and has canceled all of her speaking events for the next 6 weeks. So that means she will not be speaking in Madison at the Monona Terrace on May 1st at 7:00 pm.
However, Texas superintendent John Kuhn and Chicago Teachers’ Union president Karen Lewis will speak at Monona Terrace on May 1st at 7:00 pm.
We will use this opportunity to launch the “Reclaiming the Conversation in Education” sessions led by Edgewood College’s School of Education (More info to follow).
Continuing the fight,
