The Minutes of General Assembly meeting in Phoenix in April, 2017 are now available.
The Board, in early meetings, gave high and immediate priority to three projects for which task forces were set up: Home and School (which concerns the fruitful interaction of these two chief agents of education); Financing of Education (which concerns new means of supporting education and increasing its productivity); and Science Education. These projects have resulted in both book–length publications and, in some cases, also in shorter publications aimed at practitioners, as well as forming the basis for plans for workshops.
There will be several panel discussions at this year's General Assembly. Click the links below to get more information and let us know if you plan to attend.
The 2017 General Assembly meeting will be held on Monday, April 24, and Tuesday, April 25, at the University Club at Arizona State University.
The two day meeting will include academic sessions and presentations; a session involved Phoenix, AZ, educators; a business meeting; and a visit to the Heard Museum, one of the foremost Native American museums in the United States. Academy Fellows David Berliner and Gustavo Fischman will serve as hosts for the event.
