Where do you want to be tomorrow?
Successful entrepreneurs are open to change, swift to create opportunity. Now, more than ever, significant change is required to modify the status quo and return our country to a place of educational pre-eminence. Now, more than ever, we must lead the way to create bright futures for our students.
EDVentures 2011 promises to help all of us meet these requirements.
The EDVentures presentation team will urge us to evaluate the impact of our work and invite us to consider:
This year’s conference includes five general sessions, all led by experienced educators, authors, and speakers. On Thursday, Frank Catalano leads the way with a clear strategy for marketing that saves dollars and produces success. On Friday, acclaimed author Professor Paul Peterson traces the story of the rise, decline, and potential resurrection of American schools. Then, nationally recognized leadership expert, Professor Jim Clawson, takes a look at the necessary ingredients to achieve Leadership in Education. On Saturday, Laura Lefkowits guides us through four possible scenarios for the future of education in the private sector, followed by a group of Legislative Experts who discuss ESEA Re-authorization and the Future of SES. Our time together in San Francisco will give you a unique opportunity to meet like-minded “enterprising educators”, converse, seek solutions, form strategic alliances, and share best practices. More importantly, EDVentures will provide a forum to consider the emerging role of private sector education.
You are welcome to join one of the most powerful learning communities in education. Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with friends, learn from experts, and create a positive outlook. Surely both attendees and presenters will emerge electrified by the passion and purpose generated by our National Conference.
