U.S. Department of Education Assistant Deputy Secretary Jim Shelton will participate in a panel discussing "Learning from Success and Failure" at the New Schools-Aspen Institute Summit at 11:15 a.m. on Wednesday, May 18, at the Hyatt Regency in Burlingame, Calif. The panel of accomplished speakers will examine successes and failures across sectors including education entrepreneurship, school systems, government and philanthropy. Key questions will include: How have you succeeded and failed?; What have you done to make sure you have learned from both?; and, How do we make it easier to talk about failure?
The Summit is the leading national event on innovation and entrepreneurship that improves public education for low-income children. NewSchools Venture Fund has presented the Summit since 1999. This year, for the first time, they have partnered with the Aspen Institute to create the most ambitious Summit yet.
