Press Release: Press Advisory

PRESS ADVISORY


On March 24th, Teachers Network is presenting a major education conference that will bring together several hundred New York City parents, public school teachers, principals - all those who are committed and passionate about improving student achievement. 

New York Times Op-Ed columnist Frank Rich will open the conference, and administrative luminaries such as Carmen Farina, the new Superintendent for Community School District 15, and teacher leaders from around the city will lead workshops on innovative curriculum ideas.

There'll be a lively lunchtime discussion by New York City Mayoral candidates, focusing on education funding. With a briefing by Noreen Connell of the Educational Priorities Panel, and moderated by P.S. 6 graduate/ABC News Correspondent Robert Krulwich, the forum will explore what current policies the next mayor of New York will inherit - and what will have to be negotiated:

  • The budget remedy for the Campaign for Fiscal Equity lawsuit
  • Brain drain due to low teacher and administrative salaries
  • How to reduce class sizes in overcrowded schools
  • Declining high school graduation rates.

In response to the catastrophic teacher shortage in New York City, we are also offering workshops specifically for new teachers; providing new teachers with resources, connections, and support.

The conference is hosted by P.S. 6, at 45 East 81st Street, and presented by Teachers Network (http://teachersnetwork.org), a nationwide educational non-profit organization that has worked for more than 20 years to identify and connect innovative teachers who exemplify professionalism, independence, and creativity within public schools.
