We were given a synopsis of how education in America will function in public schools, community schools, and various other educational settings. It really appears that there will be a needed change to meet the needs of students where ever they are in their learning abilities.

I was pleased to listen to the Secretary of Education. It's like a breath of fresh air. More so, I feel, as an educator who is a Language Lerner see him as an inspiration. Great presentation! Great Job AFT!
