Presenter: Jamie Vollmer, Author and Champion for America's Public Schools

No generation of educators in history has been asked to do what Americans now demand of their public schools. Each year the burden grows, and each day millions of teachers and administrators give everything they've got to meet the challenge. Drawing on his work in hundreds of districts, Jamie Vollmer offers superintendents, board members, and their allies a practical approach to secure the understanding, trust, and permission they need to change the system and increase student success. "The Great Conversation" offers a solution to neutralize negativity and increase public understanding and support for their schools. As president of Vollmer, Inc., a public education advocacy firm, Vollmer works tirelessly to increase student success by raising public support for America's schools. Author of the highly acclaimed book Schools Cannot Do It Alone—one of the Top 10 education books of 2010 according to the American School Board Journal—Vollmer is also the 2010 recipient of the Learning and Liberty award presented by the National School Public Relations Association. Once a harsh critic, Vollmer is now an articulate champion for America's public schools who works with educators, parents, and community leaders to remove the obstacles to student success.
