Are you concerned about public education in Wisconsin? Are you interested in joining a network of teachers, parents, students and advocates committed to fighting for our public schools? Then please JOIN US at Appleton North High School on August 1, 2018, for our fourth annual ALL-STATE CONVENING of Wisconsin PUBLIC EDUCATION ADVOCATES and SUPPORTERS!
WHAT: A full day of motivating presentations, action-focused strategy sessions, and informational breakouts led by Wisconsin public education advocates and experts. Our fourth annual Summer Summit includes all of the following and more:
- Keynote speaker, Jitu Brown of Journey for Justice
- A special welcome from Dr. Tony Evers, Superintendent of Public Instruction
To build capacity and expand our network of advocates for public education, MTI will cover registration costs for any MTI member who brings a parent along to the event. Use the MTI member/guest ticket option.
The theme of this year’s summit is VOTE PUBLIC! – an invitation to all supporters of public schools to make public education a focus of all elections – local, state and national. What does local control really mean to local schools? What is the role of the public school in our democracy? How does policy impact our students? How do we know where candidates stand on education issues? How do we hold our elected officials accountable once they’re elected? How can we do all of this as nonpartisan work – especially in a big election year? Speakers and sessions will address this theme from many angles, with a focus on equity, action, and doing what’s best for our children and our communities. Sessions are led by state and national education experts, local level organizers, and leaders in education advocacy.
