For those of you wishing to meet up with me in ways other than Twitter, Blog, Facebook or e-mail, here is a list of upcoming events where you will be able to spot me, listen to me blather on, or chat me up.
Saturday February 1st Coach Frank on “What’s Going On” from 4:00pm to 5:00pm Central (radio appearance)
We will be discussing education issues, cheating in New Orleans, and the story I did on Mary D. Cogwell and Coach Frank.
If a charter cheats in the forest, and nobody makes a sound, do they still meet their AYP?
Thursday February 20th from 6pm Central . . . till my ears bleed. Common Core Information Forum, Baton Rouge. . (In-person; as a random guest not as a speaker or backup dancer)
More Common Core information than anyone should have to be tormented with, but I want to hear some of this info from the source. Common Core is still around folks. Come out and hear what these guys have to say if you want to know the truth behind the fictional highly promoted account that organizations bribed by Bill Gates regurgitate on cue.
Sunday February 23 with Shaun Johnson and Tim Slekar on At the Chalk Face, progressive EdReform radio, from 5pm to 6pm Central (radio appearance)
Specific topics to be determined. . . I have a feeling it will be about education issues and not my Lego collection (which was immense until I shared it with my son.)
Ok, this one is creepy
Saturday and Sunday March 1st and March 2nd
in Austin Texas at the NPE Conference. (In-person panelist both days)
We will be discussing student and teacher privacy and data sharing issues; how we exposed sales and sharing of student data; and legislation you being introduced in our states and around the nation. I will also be floating around to different sessions throughout these two days to collaborate, share ideas and strategize. It’s possible I might have time for a beer or three in the evening and talk smack about deformers. (I have a tendency to get very loud when engaging in either one of these activities so be forewarned to bring your earplugs if you tag along with me in the evening.)
I have no expectation of privacy after a few beers. . .
