New this year: Ed Talks, presented with Bridge and Center for Michigan
This year, we introduced the brand-new Ed Talks, a series of sessions running throughout the afternoon. With our Ed Talks partner, the nonprofit Bridge Magazine, we explored issues such as student life balance, reading, diversity and tapping into your child's inner geek.
There also was a panel discussion on the state of Michigan education, moderated by award-winning Bridge education reporter Chastity Pratt Dawsey. In the panel discussion and a town hall interactive afterward, parents were able to ask questions, learn about Michigan's education system, then find out how to get involved, on a micro or macro level.
The first 1,000 preregistered attendees received a free box lunch, courtesy of Nino Salvaggio, this year's healthy lunch sponsor.
