About The Network For Public Education Conference #NPE17CA
2017 marks our 4th annual national conference and we’re headed to Oakland, California. We will join with friends and allies to learn, share and prepare for the challenges that lie ahead during an administration that wants to privatize our schools. Public education is the pillar of our democracy. Come and learn what you can do to fight for equitable, democratically governed public schools for America’s children.
About The Network For Public Education
The Network for Public Education was founded in 2013 by Diane Ravitch and Anthony Cody. We are an advocacy group whose mission is to preserve, promote, improve and strengthen public schools for both current and future generations of students.
The goal of NPE is to connect all those who are passionate about our schools – students, parents, teachers and citizens. We share information and research on vital issues that concern the future of public education at a time when it is under attack.
