Hi everyone, On Sunday, September 26th, the Education Nation Summit will kick off with a Teacher Town Hall event and you are invited!



"Hosted by Brian Williams, anchor and managing editor of NBC Nightly News, the Teacher Town Hall will bring together teachers from across the country, both in-person and online, to brainstorm ideas, talk about what works in the classroom, and highlight the challenges of today’s education system."






If you live in NY, or the surrounding area, and would like to attend the event, let us know by the end of the day today, otherwise, you can attend the virtual event online. {See attachments for details.}






Because of our special relationship with NBC, we've been asked to share iVillager's thoughts on the following two questions with the panel at the Teacher Town Hall.



What are the biggest problems in education today?



What is the most innovative idea you've seen in practice?

I'm glad that for once, people in power are asking teachers what they think, and not categorically blaming them for all of society's ills.
