Chat that takes place tomorrow on March 26 at 2 p.m. EST.

From an email from Education Evolving and EdWeek:

Want to think creatively and deeply about redirecting K-12 policy toward innovation?

Your chance to both think and act will be at www.edweek-chat.org tomorrow, Wed. March 26, 2:00pm EDT.

Please join Education|Evolving co-founder Ted Kolderie for an online discussion, organized by Education Week, on "The Other Half of the Strategy: Following Up on System Reform by Innovating with School and Schooling". You may submit questions today for Wednesday's chat here: www.edweek-chat.org. Or, go to the EdWeek chat site during the hour-long forum and participate--or just "lurk"--in "live-time."

In this most recent E|E paper, Kolderie asserts: The system reforms taking place make improvement increasingly necessary; make change increasingly possible. But they are only half the strategy. To meet its goals this country must next undertake a serious effort to develop new forms of school and schooling. It is time, Education|Evolving argues, to redirect K-12 policy toward innovation. "The Other Half of the Strategy" also suggests how to approach this redirection, outlining barriers to innovation and ways to overcome them. For a summary of the paper's main ideas click here.

See you there!
