Addressing Equity and Excellence
On April 21, 2011, The Equity and Excellence Commission of the U.S. Department of Education held an event in San Jose, CA. Under the leadership of Representative Mike Honda and Commission Executive Director Stephen Chen, the Commission heard from four speakers in a private hearing in the afternoon, and then held a larger town hall meeting in the evening. I was one of the speakers in the private session in the afternoon, and I will post my remarks here at InterACT within the next few days. My co-blogger here at InterACT, Martha Infante, was one of the featured speakers in the evening session. Below is the video of the event. All of the speakers are worth hearing, but if you want to jump to the best of the bunch, Martha is introduced at the 38:50 mark. Martha has posted her remarks at her other blog site, Don’t Forget South Central.
