          This session explores some of the difficult topics that parents and organizations working with parents are facing throughout the country. What does it mean for the progress of community action when the NAACP vocally opposes charter schools? Are we doing enough as an education reform movement to protect the charter schools that are successful in this country? What needs to happen to close more schools that are failing? How do we bridge the gap between the grassroots organizations and the rest of the education reform community? How do we sustain long-lasting change? The panelists identify the parts of the education reform advocacy movement that are disconnected and broken and offer solutions for how to fix it.

            The Common Core State Standards aims public education at exactly the right goal: college-and-career readiness for all students. To meet these inspiring and ambitious standards demands transformational changes in teaching and learning. With fewer than two years before the initial administration of Common Core-aligned tests in 2014-15, we hear perspectives from a panel of practitioner leaders and lead standards-author (and 2012 NewSchools Change Agent of the year) David Coleman.
