Much has occurred in federal education policy over the last few weeks. The Obama administration has approved twenty-six states for greater flexibility under the No Child Left Behind Act, released a plan to improve career and technical education, and announced its Race to the Top District competition. Additionally, the House and Senate Appropriations Committees have begun work on federal education spending bills.
Please join the Alliance on Thursday, July 19 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. (ET), for a webinar featuring members of its federal advocacy team who will present updates on these developments in federal policy and their implications for states. The webinar will provide a high school perspective as it relates to the aforementioned polices; however, panelists have a variety of expertise and will answer questions from the audience related to other secondary school practices.
RSVP and ask questions of the panelists at http://media.all4ed.org/registration-jul-19-2012.
