Last year I volunteered at the Equity Forum and not only was the food great! but the discourse was awesome and critical in order to reflect deeply on your own practice and how it relates to the entire educational system.

All of the sessions that I attended taught me a lot about the larger purposes of education.

Networking was also a ++++!

In Solidarity, David Hernandez-Saca

Not only is the climate warm, the people are too, and this conference brings together some of the most talented and committed educators you will ever meet. If you want to be inspired to work for equity in education, this is THE event of the year. (Full disclosure, I help evaluate and work with this team and they are an awesome group with a great deal of depth of knowledge and school-based experience). Plus several of the presenters are school-based teams from places that are really making BIG differences for kids. Check out the huge amount of FREE resources on equity at
