National Forum :: NCCREStNCCRESt’s 1st Annual National Forum

Creating Opportunities to Learn: A Forum for Addressing Disproportionality
February 15-17, 2006
Keynote Presenters included:
Alfredo Artiles, Beth Harry, Joe Johnson, Janette Klingner, Elizabeth Kozleski, Peggy McIntosh, Glenn Singleton, and Brenda Townsend.
The National Forum was a great success and an exciting event. Some of the nation’s top education experts gathered and addressed issues of equity, power and privilege, race, systems change, and policy leadership. Seventy-five concurrent sessions focused on creating culturally responsive educational systems to assure equity in educational outcomes for all students and become the vehicle for eliminating the disproportionate representation of culturally and linguistically diverse students in special education. There was tremendous participant interaction, culminating in a Town Hall at the end of the conference that will guide continuing work.
