Robin Lake to Moderate Panel at the Yale SOM Education Leadership Conference
Robin Lake will moderate the “Collaboration Across Schools” panel at the 7th Annual Yale SOM Education Leadership Conference.
The Education Leadership Conference brings together social entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, policymakers, investors, and education experts to discuss innovations in K-12 education reform. The theme for this year’s conference, Inspiring Transformational Change, calls on leaders of organizations and systems to drive change toward lasting, high-quality educational opportunities for all children.

How can we move the dialogue beyond a debate over district versus charter schools to how we get great schools? How are district and charter schools effectively driving transformational change together, and how can we create an ecosystem of collaboration across our public schools? What are the common conditions and factors that have made collaboration more likely, and what are the issues that have made it impossible?
