Teachers 4 Social Justice Conference

This weekend, Oct 6 & 7, 2012, Teachers 4 Social Justice will hold their Annual Conference in San Francisco.

Registration is open.

Keynote speakers are Sonia Nieto and Sean Arce.

This quote from Sonia Nieto will give you a feel for the ideals of Teachers 4 Social Justice:

"Although for over a century our nation has advanced the
ideal that a high-quality and excellent public education is the
birthright of all children, our schools cannot fulfill this ambitious
and noble purpose unless all of us—parents, policymakers, and
the general public—commit ourselves to sustaining education as
a public trust and a promise to future generations. "

This conference is open and welcomes any and all of the following:
  • Classroom Teachers
  • Paraprofessionals, Administrators, Support Personnel
  • Parents and Youth
  • After-school Youth Workers and Youth Workers in general
  • Credential Candidates
  • Aspiring Educators
  • The Public!!
Come and get educated about education.  Share your knowledge, wisdom and questions.

Strengthen yourself by spending time with others who care about public education.

Sharpen your wits and skills through discussions and workshops.

In times of crisis, it is easy to feel alone.

But we are not alone.

Act on that truth by attending this conference or through some other action.

Public education is about the group and in California that is a very big group, indeed.

Note:  It's a very busy weekend in San Francisco, so public transit is highly recommended.
