Rebels with a Cause
March 7, 2012 San Diego Charter Schools were well represented at the 2012 Conference as the scheduled MC was ill and our very own Cameron Curry from Classical Academies stepped in for the entire three days. He did a fantastic job, and few even realized that he had stepped in at the last minute except that the photo didn't match the program.
The highlight of the conference was definitely the rally at the capital for equitable funding for charter schools. We had hundreds walk out with us to the steps of the capital on a very cool day, where the Governor joined us calling us "rebels" and told us to keep up the pressure. It was a huge success and a very inspiring event. Check out the video.
Next year's conference is returning to the San Diego Convention Center, March 11-14. Mark your calendars now. With the conference local it is a great opportunity to present your best practices through breakout sessions, get your teachers connected to other charter teachers, provide your board members some great training and involve your parents in the movement.
