Get Ready for the 2018 NNER Summer Symposium

by Catherine Bornhorst

Co-Hosted by our Lehman College/CUNY and Montclair State University settings, the National Network for Educational Renewal’s (NNER) Summer Symposium will take place July 16-19, 2018 in the Bronx, New York.

The Symposium is designed to deepen participant understanding of the NNER mission and Agenda for Education in a Democracy, which emphasizes the moral dimensions of schooling in a democracy and promotes a view of educators as ethical decision-makers responsible for disrupting inequities in school and assuring the engagement and learning of all students. The Symposium will be a place where NNER colleagues from across the nation demonstrate their commitment to civic responsibility and to critically examining the nature, causes, and means for eradicating social and institutional inequalities as well as to fostering the development of best practices for supporting productive learning for all students.

Symposium participants will engage in interactive sessions and shared learning experiences in the NYC area, such as a tour of the African Burial Ground National Monument located in Lower Manhattan. The sessions and activities will be used to emphasize the distinctive NNER structures, practices, and activities that promote the simultaneous renewal of the public schools and those who educate educators. Participants will leave with a shared understanding and common language based on the four NNER moral dimensions and obtain a renewed vision about why we engage in the work of NNER and how current events and educational policy environments impact public education.


If you are interested in sending participants to this intensive professional development opportunity, we must receive registrations no later than June 22nd, including the registration fee.
