 ‘Brilliant! Engaging and enjoyable…relevant and pertinent…a shame I couldn’t attend more sessions. Arrived in the classroom on Monday with head still buzzing 🙂 thank you! :)’
– previous attendee
After last year in New York, the UK conference phenomena returns to the US in our first ever event in the nation’s capital. Join us for a day of thought leaders, inspirational voices and some of the keenest minds in education as we discuss what research really tells us about the best ways to teach, run schools and help children learn. This is a day for teachers, school leaders, researchers, academics, and anyone who cares about bringing the best research into the classrooms who need them most. 
Come along for a day of myth busting, idea revolutions, reason, debate, and challenge- and be prepared to listen, network, ask questions and wrestle with an international cast of minds. Whether you teach elementary children in the inner city, run a school budget, or work in research, there’s something for every stage and role. You select the sessions that you want the most, building a day that suits your needs and ambitions. 
We hope to see you there.
