Johan Uvin, deputy assistant secretary, delegated the duties of the assistant secretary, for the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education will give a presentation on how federal programs can support the out-of-school workforce at the American Educational Research Association Annual (AERA) Conference on Friday, April 8 in Washington, D.C.
Uvin's presentation will be made at a roundtable discussion on the state of the out-of-school time workforce being hosted by Youth Today, an independent, nationally distributed newspaper covering youth development, juvenile justice, after-school programs and mentoring, job training and school-to-work, and other issues.
The AERA Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of scholars in the field of education research. It is a showcase for ground-breaking, innovative studies in a diverse array of areas—from early education through higher education, from digital learning to second language literacy. "Public Scholarship to Educate Diverse Democracies" is the theme of this year's meeting.
