Last month, Education Week released its annual Leaders to Learn From report, which highlighted an accomplished group of 14 district leaders from across the country. On Friday, March 31st, these inspiring individuals will be recognized in a Washington, D.C. event —and the event is being livestreamed for free! Programming will run from 8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. ET, and you may register here to watch live.
This has been a lively event in past years, featuring popular speakers such as growth mindset researcher Carol Dweck. This year is no exception: the day will feature presentations and discussions about school leadership and education policy, as well as keynote speakers Angela Duckworth, author of “Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance,” and Mike Schmoker, author of “Leading With Focus.”
