NAIS 2011 Annual Conference

     I am off to Washington, D.C. to the Annual Conference of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).  
     I am especially looking forward to seeing and hearing Dan Heath, author of the bestseller Switch, Wendy Mogel, author of Blessing of a Skinned Knee and Blessing of a B Minus, Sugata Mitra, the man behind the "Hole in the Wall Project," and Geoffrey Canada, the educator featured in the film "Waiting for Superman."
     A great lineup of keynote speakers.

I would love to hear more about Geoffrey Canada's comments at the Conference. I've seen the film, and am preparing to hold the lottery for my new school in April. It's a controversial topic, and one that those of us in charter schools think should be handled with sensitivity.
