FYI... Dr. Wood is the former principal of Federal Hocking High School, and current Superintendent for the district. Deborah Meier was a founding teacher/principal at Central Park East in Harlem, NY -- being part of a group that changed their "failing" public school to one inclusive of a progressive democratic educational community. The story of that is in her book, "The Power of Ideas".  (A very good read, btw.)

The theme for this year’s conference is: Building Sustainable Communities: Reclaiming Our Value, with the following 5 strands:

Using Data to Sustain our Work: This strand focuses on how teachers and faculty partner to use student data to improve outcomes, and on the conditions that influence successful use of data to advance the mission of NNER partnerships. There is a gap in the research literature on how student data informs classroom instruction. Information on how to use data is essential in improving student outcomes. This strand is seeking to hear from the field how “data-based decision making” reforms or practices are occurring.

Sustaining Democratic Engagement: This strand focuses on how universities, P-12 schools, and community organizations partner to promote, cultivate, and sustain the knowledge, skills, and dispositions for thoughtful participation in a democracy. These partnerships are multidisciplinary teams with expansive expertise to collaborate and develop mutually beneficial goals, emphasizing reciprocity, to increase quality educational opportunities through research and implementation in the community.

Empowering Teachers to Lead and Sustain the Profession: Teachers and education faculty must be empowered to lead policymaking and reshape our profession. Legislators don’t build profession, only teachers can. NNER partnerships can be the mechanism for this to occur. How is your partnership training your candidates to join teachers in shaping democratic policies? This strand is designed to share models of how we clear the way for teachers to lead.

Building Community for Social Sustainability: This strand calls for thinking creatively and innovatively about what it means for a community to be socially sustainable and for ways in which we can contribute to that goal. Socially sustaining communities require sustainable leadership that values equity, respect, human potential, and democratic engagement. Everything in our universe is connected to everything else. How do we create educational opportunities that promote socially sustaining communities?

Sharing Responsibility in Higher Education for Sustainable Partnerships: This strand will focus on the efforts of the university to expand partnership involvement with pk-12 schools and community organizations beyond that of the college of education to include the colleges of arts and sciences and other campus academic units.

We are looking forward to seeing you at this year's conference. For more information please contact Dorcas Oduro, NNER Conference Planning Committee Assistant, at NNERconference at gmail.com<mailto:NNERconference at gmail.com>.

Thank you.


Dorcas Oduro.
