Shifting the Prevailing Ideology

This will likely be my last email before I head to DC for Teach for America's 20th Anniversary Summit on Saturday.  I hope to see lots of you there!  I'm part of this panel at 3pm on Saturday:

Shifting the Prevailing Ideology

Day and Time
Saturday, 03:00 PM - 04:15 PM.

From Waiting for "Superman" to public reporting of teachers' impact on student performance, the past year has seen unprecedented effort by the media to expose the American public to educational inequity. In this panel, journalists, filmmakers, and political advocates and commentators will reflect on what works in convincing the public that it is possible to achieve educational equity and in generating a deeper understanding of what it will take to do so.
