The Ravitch Conference, Featuring Randi Weingarten

Diane Ravitch and Anthony Cody started a new organization a year or so ago called the Network for Public Education.  Board members were chosen, and the chosen board members chose Ravitch as President and Cody as Treasurer.

As NPE president, Ravitch will be the Keynote Speaker at a UTexas based two-day conference in early March that, according to Cody, will "bring together activists from around the country to network and learn together, from one another, so as to strengthen our ability to act in defense of public education."

Prominently noted on the conference poster at the NPE website is an "All -Star Panel featuring Randi Weingarten." 

According to Cody, the title of Weingarten panel session will be "Common Core: What Is the Best Way Forward?"

I am wondering if Bill Gates will get an invitation to participate.
