Edupreneurs Invade DC

Another week, another education conference in DC.  This one is the NewSchools Venture Fund's 10th annual summit, an invitation-only event that last year was held in New Orleans. 

New_schools_venture_fundI dubbed that event the "Sundance of School Reform."  I'm still working on a name for this one, though this admonition makes me optimistic that a good nickname will not be hard to find: "THERE IS A NON-SOLICITATION POLICY FOR THIS EVENT. Please help us respect this policy."

All the usual suspects will be speaking there, including current school reform show ponies such as Michelle Rhee, Randi Weingarten, and Cory Booker.  As in the past, I'll be looking to see what role, if any, is given to real-world educators and to developing a political strategy.  I'm looking forward to it.
