This in-depth panel discussion considered how the national school reform movement has taken root in Texas, and the challenges facing public school advocates in Texas cities.

It was an interesting discussion by people who have much knowledge and information on education reform developments throughout America and Texas.

I enjoyed participating on the panel.
