Friday, December 2 • 1:30pm - 3:00pm
In the beginning, there was...: A Founders Panel

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The founding years of CES were heady and optimistic times, referred to by some as the Golden Years of the nation's focus on high schools. The Founder's Panel brings together an eclectic and accomplished group of CES "early days" stalwarts who worked with and distinguished Ted Sizer's "big ideas." Sure to be a rousing chat, with plenty of time for audience interaction, our panelists will include: Deborah Meier, Dennis Littky, Paula Evans, Bob McCarthy, and Nancy Sizer. The moderator will be another CES veteran, Larry Myatt, offering attendees both a history lesson and implications for the future.
