Your Tuesday, ET and ES

You didn’t have any work to do anyway did you? You can now spend the better part of tomorrow, Tuesday, at two interesting education events in D.C:

In the AM (10:30-noon), Ed Trust gathers Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL); Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-PA); and Rep. Artur Davis (D-AL) and educators Al Harper, Barbara Adderley, Martha Barber to discuss “Yes We Can,” a new Ed Trust report about African-American student achievement. 562 Dirksen Senate Office Building.

Then get lunch.

In the PM, 1-2:30 at the National Press Club (14th and F), Education Sector will gather Georgetown’s Harry Holzer, USA Today’s Richard Whitmire, and ES’ Sara Mead for a debate about Mead’s recent report on boys and girls. AFTie Ruth Wattenberg moderates and it promises to be a very lively discussion you do not want to miss. Mead’s a known man-hater and is rarely allowed out like this and Whitmire has a forthcoming book on the issue.
