U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will discuss the importance of collaboration in the Department’s initiatives and programs during a conference on leveraging resources on Tuesday, March 20 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Bethesda, Md. After being introduced by Assistant Secretary for Special Education and Rehabilitative Services Alexa Posny, Duncan will talk about the importance of coordinating technical assistance across the Department to improve results and outcomes for all children, youth and families.

The conference has three main focus areas – Early Learning, Great Teachers and Leaders, and College and Career Readiness – which relate to the Administration’s priorities for providing all children and youth with a world-class education. The goal of this year’s conference is to work with Department-funded technical assistance providers to focus attention on how to best leverage resources to ensure equitable educational opportunities for all children and youth regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, age, gender, ability, language, and socioeconomic status.
