"Our City as a Learning Lab for Urban Education Reform"
 

Young Education Professionals-DC (YEP-DC) is excited to announce its 4th Annual Policy to Practice Conference, "Our City as a Learning Lab for Urban Education Reform" will be held from 8:00AM - 4:30PM. The Conference will take place at the beautiful Cardozo Education Campus located north of U Street Corridor (1200 Clifton St NW, Washington, DC 20009).   

Our City as a Learning Lab will probe both achievements and challenges around improving education outcomes of all students in grades Pre-K-12 in Washington, DC.  Expert local facilitators will approach topics at the classroom, school, and system level with an analytical lens, sharing strategies as well as measurable outcomes from initiatives. Facilitators and attendees will engage issues endemic to urban education, such as variance in school equity and achievement gaps between student subgroups. In sum, the Conference will unearth lessons learned from the past decade of reform in DC and interrogate how these lessons can inform urban education efforts across the United States in the future. 
 

Over the past three Policy to Practice Conferences, 1,000 young education professionals and over 50 organizations have convened to engage across policy, practice, and research sectors to learn, and push what's possible in education.
 

This year's Conference will be a unique and invaluable professional development experience with endless opportunities for networking, workshops, engaging discussions, and opportunities beyond the one-day conference.
