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.
