ASCD’s Legislative Conference!
What will the U.S. presidential election and the new Congress mean for
education in 2013? How will policy decisions related to the Common
Core State Standards; No Child Left Behind (NCLB) waivers; educator
evaluation systems; and education funding affect what’s happening in your
districts, schools, and classrooms?
ASCD’s 2013 Leadership Institute for Legislative Advocacy (LILA) will
address these and other timely topics that influence your day-to-day work
as an educator. Register now for an outstanding opportunity to hear from
national education leaders about the latest education policy developments,
network with fellow educators, and share your expertise with your federal
lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
The conference will take place January 27–29, 2013, at the Westin
Georgetown Hotel in Washington, D.C.
Conference highlights include
■ Sessions with Capitol Hill and U.S. Department of Education insiders
who will share their perspectives on the future of NCLB and other federal education priorities.
