How Public is Public Education?
3rd Annual TRED Conference
November 14 and 15, 2014
Hosted by the Doctoral Students of the Department of Educational Leadership
The Transformative Researchers and Educators for Democracy (TRED) will be holding its third Annual Conference, How Public is Public Education, November 14 and 15, 2014, at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.
The theme of the 2014 conference, How Public is Public Education?, reflects the critical elements within and beyond the field of education that need to be discussed, heard, and analyzed as we search for solutions. Professors, students, educational leaders, and the public are all welcome to submit proposals and to attend the conference.
Founded in 2011, UMass Dartmouth’s Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies has grown to four cohorts of future transformative leaders. Ph.D. and Ed.D. candidates in the program have sought to provide a public space for educational researchers and practitioners to engage in critical and transformative dialogues. Through forums, presentation sessions, panel discussions, and informal gatherings, TRED continues its ambition to place the discussion of educational leadership and policy within the dynamics of ideological production that reflect existing power imbalances that perpetuate inequalities within society.
