City Connects to Attend Innovation Forum

After submitting a highly-rated but not funded Investing in Innovation, or “i3,” proposal (see our post about it here), City Connects has been invited to attend the Aspen Institute’s Education Innovation Forum & Expo in Washington, DC, Jan. 20-21, 2011. According to the Aspen Institute, the event will bring together over 500 leading education innovators and philanthropic, for-profit and institutional investors, with some of the country’s most creative public and private sector leaders to address the most intractable challenges facing American education.

We are excited for the opportunity to share our approach to optimizing student support and addressing the out-of-school factors that impact learning. If you’ll be there, stop by and say hello–we will be in booth 201! If not, the event will be webcast live–more info here.
