I found the sessions and networking to be outstanding. I appreciate hearing the honesty and vulnerability from so many talented superintendents and educational leaders. I learned from all of them.

At every National Conference on Education, there is literally a professional learning opportunity for every aspect of educational leadership.

Several sessions I attended on systems and equity were very valuable for the work I am doing in my school district.
