Update: May 1st Education Event to feature Karen Lewis & John Kuhn

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!

See below for the announcement from Edgewood College Dean of Education Tim Slekar:

Friends,
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,

Tim
