Events: Education Speakers At This Summer's Aspen Ideas Festival
The lineup for this year's Aspen Ideas Festival is out and you're probably not on it (2012 Aspen Ideas Speakers). But there are lots of education folks listed, and it looks like things are shaping up for a big focus on the character and resilience issues that were the focus of Paul Tough's NYT Sunday Magazine article last September. Tough and the folks from Riverdale and KIPP are on the list, and his book is slated to come out in September I'm told.
Click below for my handpicked list of education folks on included in the speakers' agenda. Let me know if I've missed someone, or if your tea leaves are better or different than mine. Is anyone going to cover the thing this year, I wonder? I sure hope there are some education reporters out there.
