SW TURN Labor-Management Collaboration Conference

September 16-17, 2016

The Fall meeting of SW TURN will be held at the Hotel Andaluz

(125 2nd St NW, Albuquerque, NM 87102) on September 16th and 17th, 2016.


On Friday afternoon, Sept.16 beginning at 1:00 pm we dig more deeply into teacher-led and community schools.

Barnett Berry, CEO of the Center for Teacher Quality (CTQ),will present on teacher powered schools and Jose Munoz, Executive Director of ABC Community Schools will share some insights into the nature of community schools in Albuquerque.

On Saturday, Sept 17, until 3:00 pm, we continue the discussion around inequality in our schools and what it will take to achieve equity and excellence for all students. In order to achieve that goal, we will create messages for the public that reengage their support of our public school system. We may have some guests from the union friendly Ford Foundation who are interested in what we are doing.


We also have secured a number of sleeping rooms at the Andaluz (http://www.hotelandaluz.com/) on the night of September 16 at a discounted rate and with complimentary wi-fi access. We have secured free valet parking at the hotel.
