I'll be participating in a panel on "How do schools foster innovative teaching?" at each of two conferences of the Independent Curriculum Group: Friday, January 15 in NYC, and Thursday, January 28 in Philadelphia.
The ICG is a coalition of schools that de-emphasize APs and prioritize their own educational missions. Appropriately, Mark Salkind (my visionary boss at Urban) chairs the ICG board.
