The Alliance for Excellent Education is currently accepting proposals for its popular achievement forum series, which highlights successful practices in middle and high school education. This year’s topic is “Preparing All Students for College and Work.” In the past, these forums have routinely attracted about 150 people per session and offer the opportunity for policymakers, educators, researchers, advocates, the media, and others to learn about the most promising practices in middle and high school education that prepare all students for college and work.
The Alliance welcomes proposals on any topic, program, or initiative related to middle and high school reform that ensures students are college- and work-ready when they graduate, including those at the school, district, or state levels. Proposals not focused on secondary-level initiatives that promote college and work readiness will not be considered.
The deadline to submit a proposal is Monday, May 12, 2008. Selections and dates for the achievement series will be announced in June. Additional information on this year’s forums, including directions on how to submit a proposal and topics of particular interest, is available at https://all4ed.org/events/2008_HSachievement_series.
