Monday, August 06, 2018

Registration Deadline Date is 8/2/2018

Arne Duncan was one of the longest serving members of President Barack Obama's cabinet and among the most influential Secretaries of Education in history. He has spent nearly three decades across all levels of education, from his mother's after-school program on Chicago's Southside to CEO of the Chicago Public Schools. Secretary Duncan will provide an expose of the U.S. education system status quo that helps maintain a broken system at the expense of our kids' education. Secretary Duncan says Education runs on lies.

He will also talk about the countless everyday heroes that he has encountered along the way: teachers, principals, reformers, staffers, business people, mayors, and presidents.
