Attend the 2017 NW Teaching for Social Justice Conference


Dear Rethinking Schools friends,

Our 10th annual NWTSJ Conference is just a week and a half away: Saturday, October 21, at Chief Sealth International High School in Seattle.

Take a look at the program at our website, www.nwtsj.org. More than 75 amazing workshops; a morning keynote by New York City teacher activist Brian Jones, on Teaching to a Future We Cannot Yet See"; special panels on ethnic studies and early-career teacher issues; and dozens of community and education groups at our Resource Fair -- including a full display of Rethinking Schools books and magazines.

The conference is still just $30 -- and $5 for students, including people in teacher education programs -- and that includes coffee and tea in the morning, lunch, and much more.

Need help with housing in Seattle? Write our NWTSJ Housing Coordinator, Peter Henry:

Don't miss this festival of justice and imagination. Come and meet other people of conscience from around the Northwest who are working to improve our schools -- and the world. www.nwtsj.org

The conference is sponsored by Puget Sound Rethinking Schools, Social Equality Educators, the Oregon Writing Project at Lewis & Clark College, the Portland Association of Teachers, the Portland-area Critical Educators Collective, and Rethinking Schools magazine.
