National Forum 2016

Registration Now Open

The Community Schools National Forum 2016
in Albuquerque, NM

April 6-8 | Pre-Conference Sessions start April 5

In April 2016, the Coalition for Community Schools, together with the Albuquerque/Bernalillo Community Schools Partnership, will convene diverse stakeholders dedicated to better results for young people across the nation. Our National Forum happens at a time when the challenges facing public education seem insurmountable. Over half of America’s school children are now poor; more of our children are members of ethnic and racial minority groups, there is deepening concern about the future of children of color; and inequities in our society are more apparent than ever.

In community schools all children can thrive, regardless of their race, ethnicity, or economic status. In fact, as we "rise together," community schools pay particular attention to building on the assets of children and youth in families facing the greatest inequities. That is why equity and opportunity for all has been a central tenet of our work. We are excited for you to join us in Albuquerque as we learn together, celebrate together, and rise together.
