I’ll be attending the National AfterSchool Association convention near Washington today to learn more about expanded learning and the many hard-working people involved in it. This year, the convention has been paired with “The Afterschool for All Challenge,” bringing together the NAA and the Afterschool Alliance. The three-day meeting will include lots and lots of workshops, as well as celebrity speakers (including actor and author Hill Harper), and Capitol Hill congressional visits and a rally. If you’re attending, I hope to see you there. It should be an interesting event.
