Anthony Cody, administrator for Facebook’s Teachers’ Letters to Obama, has announced that there are only 20 slots left for the Elluminate Teach-in on Monday night. Be sure to sign up here, or get more information here!
Here is part of his announcement:
We still have about twenty slots left for our first Virtual Teach-in, “Testing, Testing, Too Much Testing!” this coming Monday night. Our guests, Monty Neill, Doug Christensen and Yong Zhao have some fantastic information to share that will enrich our conversations and focus us on some clear alternatives to the current policies. You can register here.
I got a phone call this week from a representative from the Department of Education, and they remain interested in hearing our views. We are organizing a follow-up event to the Teach-in which will be a Teachers’ Roundtable, featuring representatives from the Teachers’ Letters to Obama group. This event will be held Monday, June 28, from 8:30 to 10:30 pm Eastern time.
A word about process. This group that started as a means of collecting letters to send to the President has grown to over 2,300 members. It is my intention to have it function in a democratic manner, but that is challenging when we have such a loose affiliation and do not meet face to face. Marsha Ratzel and I were responsible for identifying the 12 people who were involved in the call to Secretary Duncan, and this group is now functioning as a loose steering committee, helping to plan the events we have coming up.
If you would like to be one of the speakers at the Teachers’ Roundtable, or would like to nominate someone else, please let me know. We will be working on the roster over the next week.
Exciting things are happening. This grass roots effort to have national leaders in conversation with each other has taken hold. PLP is proud to partner with this great organization. Don’t you want to be a part of it?
