2017 Equity and Engagement Conference
Getting all Kids to College and Career
Effective student cradle-to-career educational efforts require equitable partnerships between home, schools and communities and a commitment to developing adult capacity to engage. This conference will teach you about the conditions and processes that need to be in place so that we can all support student achievement as partners in education.
