Reform: Reform Celebration In Seattle
I kept hearing about something happening in Seattle that I wasn't invited to (like most things) and assumed it was some sort of secret Gates Foundation event. Gates denied anything was going on, which only fueled my paranoia. But after all that it was actually a meeting of the PIE (Policy Innovators in Education) Network, a group of state advocacy organizations that was conceived of by a group of DC think tanks of all things and was gathering to celebrate its accomplishments and address future challenges. Hear more about the event and see pictures here. Read some of Rick Hess's made-up tweets from the event here. My favorite: "@FordhamMike- Don't like reform realism or dynamism devotees? Got a million more. Critical collaboration? Gucci governance? C'mon people, work with me!"
