On Tuesday night I had the pleasure of being a panelist in the first ever ExpandED Salon. ExpandEd Schools is a brilliant organization dedicated to closing the learning gap in low-income schools.
The panel was hosted by Soledad O’Brien and my fellow panelists included EducationNews.org Editor In Chief Matthew Tabor and author Dale Russakoff. Her landmark education book – The Prize – details the squandering of a $100 million dollar donation from Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg to Newark, NJ schools.
It was an overwhelmingly positive evening and I may or may not have convinced Soledad to institute a Sunday night, “Spaghetti and Vsauce” tradition for her family. 😉
