The NEA, AASA and HOPE Foundation to Host National Forum on School Improvement
BLOOMINGTON, IND. – (January 30, 2013) – Educational Leaders from State to school building levels throughout the country will convene on April 12–13 at the Hilton Hotel in Crystal City outside of Washington, D.C. to discuss what is working in improving low-performing schools. The forum is expected to bring some 1,000 school and district leaders together to focus on three major areas: building a high-performing culture of trust; consistent implementation of effective instruction; and sustaining the success. "The U.S. Department of Education has spent billions of dollars to improve low-performing schools," explained organizer Alan Blankstein, president of the HOPE Foundation, and author of Failure Is Not an Option®. "This is an opportunity to share what is working in this arena and to assure that the gains are sustained once the funding streams shift."
