Fall Forum 2012 | An Ongoing Conversation Among Friends Nov 9 - 10, 2012 Providence, RI The Met School For over 25 years, the Coalition of Essential Schools has kept the focus where it belongs: on students, families and schools. Education policy and practice has been in the forefront of news this year, amidst strong debate regarding NCLB, the place and purpose of standardized testing, and the role and reach of teachers in determining classroom content. The Fall Forum presents a unique opportunity to come together with other educators to return to a vibrant discussion about what the 10 Common principles mean to us as educators during times of changing administrations and policies. How do the principles anchor us in our daily work? Begin the conversation Friday November 9 with a FULL DAY of intensive pedagogical support for educators provided by leaders and practitioners from across the network followed by the Friday evening panel discussion: "What's Next? Responses to the 2012 Election" On Saturday the conversation will continue with smaller workshops facilitated by practitioners from Essential Schools.
