I have philosophical differences with the Kentucky Education Association, to be sure, but I am always supportive of the organization's efforts to promote high-quality teaching. Next month KEA will partner with the Pritchard Committee for Academic Excellence and the Kentucky Department of Education to hold a teacher-led conference called "Let's TALK: Conversations about Effective Teaching" (TALK is an acronym for Teacher Advocates Leading Kentucky).
The conference will be held June 19-21 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Louisville and keynote speakers will include Heidi Hayes Jacobs, national-known curriculum development specialist and author of Curriculum 21: Essential Education for a Changing World.
Conference registration is $50. Click here for registration information.
