I am anxiously awaiting the release of Seattle dates for the Harvard University sponsored Education and Family engagement workshops. The current plan is for the summer of 2016, with the University of Washington as the pending host. My colleague, who attended the workshops in Boston last month, learned so much and came back with tons to share. It should even be of more value when it is held locally and deals with issues directly related to family and education in the Seattle area. I always said that I could be a permanent student, and by working in education I get pretty close! I am not sure if this event will be open to the public, but worth looking into once the final plan is in place.
Here is a link from The Seattle Times on the July 2015 event held in Cambridge, MA.
