Social Justice: Is It Time We Re-Define What a Successful School Is?
Limited Capacity seats available

The motto of CAG is “Every Child Deserves a Free, Public and Appropriate Education”. If the core definition of Social Justice in Schools means that EVERY student’s needs must be met, how do we ensure that this includes gifted students learning something new every day in a supportive and challenging environment? We cannot assume that students who do well can be left on their own within the confines of a classroom. Participants will hear a powerful high school principal, from a 3,500+ student high school, share how his school continues to be considered one of the top academic performing schools in California.
