You are invited to the 3rd Annual Wisconsin Public Education Network Summer Summit – the Wisconsin public education advocacy event of the year: an opportunity like no other to connect with and learn from other supporters of public schools. From parents and grassroots organizers to academics and administrators, the Summit showcases the expertise and experience that all of our statewide partners bring to the important work we do in supporting our students and their public schools.

Building on the 2017 theme – GO PUBLIC! – this year’s lineup includes interactive sessions with trusted experts and veteran organizers on the topics our statewide partners want to talk about most. The day opens with a welcome from Dr. Tony Evers, Superintendent of Public Instruction, and closes with the Wisconsin premiere of the brand-new documentary, Backpack Full of Cash, and a conversation with our special guests, Sarah Mondale and Vera Aronow, director and producers of the film. An optional dinner follows.
Please help extend this invitation to all who need to be part of these conversations. Forward this message widely to administrators, board members, parents, and community leaders who support strong local schools, and invite your entire team. You’ll want to split up and take in as many sessions as you can! You can also share this link directly: https://summer_summit.eventbrite.com.
