I’ve already written about how much I’m looking forward to COPE’s Re:Imagine Schools event tonight. I’ll be live-blogging the event as well. You can scroll down to watch or participate in the live-blog!
The COPE Education Committee Presents: Re:Imagine Schools – Defending the Potential of Public Education
Imagine a chance to take a step back from the day-to-day struggles being faced in public education right now and get a chance to think about all the innovation and change we could implement if given the chance. Join COPE School Board Trustees, members of COPE’s Education Committee, and public education advocates from across Vancouver for an evening of energizing discussion and imagination.
Re:Imagine Schools will bring together a panel of leading scholars and writers to talk about education and its future. The panel will feature Stephen Seaborn, editor of “Playing Fast and Loose with Public Education” and other exciting guests focusing on three key topics:
• The Power of Public Education (Why we need to protect and rebuild)
• Early Childhood Education (A Canada that works for all generations)
• The New School (Reimagining how our schools look and operate)
Tickets are only $10 and can be purchased online right here. Tickets can also be purchased directly from COPE without a fee via email or phone: firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-255-0400.
