Teachers and the New "New Deal"

April 24–25, 2009
United Teachers of Los Angeles

This Forum provides an opportunity for educators and unionists to explore issues raised by this education and labor collaborative initiative, and to consider ways and means of implementing the products of such collaboration. The Forum offers workshops and interactive dialogue sessions that provide examples of the sort of projects that could help us reach our goals of a public educated in its collective self-interest, and a teacher corps better prepared to provide such an education.
