We are negotiating with UNC Chapel Hill to get a few seats for parents at the Fall Symposium entitled "21st Century Skills for a Global Economy." The cost is $125 for two days (Oct. 14th and 15th) and we will probably only have four seats available for parents. I have linked the information about the Symposium below and the speakers are among the foremost experts in the World on Globalization (Peter Brews is absolutely SUPER!!!)
Yong Zhao is also a featured speaker and I have linked information for his book about education in the U.S. and China.
