At the NewSchools Summit in Washington, D.C. in May, the day started out with heavy-hitting dialogue about the progress of education reform, and ended with an urgent call to keep pushing to address the achievement gap. But what happened in between? Breakout sessions addressed tactical challenges for education entrepreneurs to pursue in the year ahead, including whether or not to partner with traditional school systems, how to communicate effectively about their work and impact, whether to engage in political advocacy, and how to harness the slate of new education documentaries to raise awareness and incite action. Also, entrepreneurs and change agents received awards in celebration of their accomplishments.
