‘Our School’ on the road

I got back today from our Chicago-Milwaukee-Madison trip, but I’ve got more travel to come to promote the paperback edition of Our School: The Inspiring Story of Two Teachers, One Big Idea, and the Charter School That Beat the Odds.

Tomorrow, I fly down to visit my mother before going to San Diego for the California Charter Schools Conference, Town and Country Resort, 5000 Hotel Circle North. I’m doing a “table talk” at 1 pm. Stop by if you’re at the convention.

I’ll be home for Passover then off to Seattle for an April 4 talk and lunch at 11:30 am in the Commons, third floor of Parrington Hall, University of Washington. The Center for Reinventing Education will host the “Policymakers Exchange.” Everyone’s welcome. Please RSVP by March 30 to [email protected] or Maggie Bardacke at 206-685-2214.

Thanks to Sound Politics for running a promo of the UW event.

About Joanne


  1. I have a question about charters in California. Are there any charters specifically for kids with learning disabilities? I know there are a few around the country, such as two Einstein Montessori schools in Florida that specifically addrress dyslexia.

    I haven’t been able to find any in California.
