On October 24 and 25, 2013, more than 200 leaders in education reform met in Washington, DC, to tackle issues such as race, equity, how we define 21st century education, where global standards meet Common Core, and more. Most importantly, the annual Union-District Convening brings together union-district leadership teams from the NEA Foundation’s Closing the Achievement Gaps Initiative and our Institute for Innovation in Teaching and Learning to develop systems and approaches to improve learning conditions and student performance.
