The Great Conversation™ is hosted by Jamie Vollmer, a nationally acclaimed public education advocate and author of the award-winning book, Schools Cannot Do It Alone.
Jamie’s stated goal is twofold:
"First, to increase support for the people working in our public schools. We are asking them to educate the most diverse, distracted, demanding generation of students the world has ever seen! They need all the help they can get. Second, to encourage the staff and community to work together to help all students get the education they need to succeed as adults."
The overall message is that everyone has a vested interest in increasing student success whether or not we have children in school.
