K-12 and Highed Ed Convene Statewide Conference to Save Public Education

As many good efforts, this one begins in California. Will Boston be next? UMass and MTA? Anyone?
From CA Campaign to Save Public Education:

We apologize for the inconvenience, but to ensure that we’re able to best accommodate all conference attendees, we ask that everyone update their RSVP with the new link above (or by clicking here).

The revised form removes the requirement of a Facebook account, allows us to better track our numbers, helps us get an idea of your housing and transportation needs, and gives a breakdown of geographical representation.

Even if you’ve already confirmed on Facebook, please RSVP again using the form above. Help us make this a successful conference for everyone involved. Thanks for understanding!

Agenda and Directions posted!
