Asilomar 66: OCTOBER 6 – 8, 2017

This year’s theme, Excellence Through Equity: From a Powerful Vision to Everyday Reality, marks what many believe to be a rising tide toward a deeply felt desire—the desire to provide a brighter future for all our country’s students. We live in a world of growing economic disparities, mistrust, brutality, and unequal educational opportunities. Guided by our Friday night keynote speaker, Pedro Noguera, and our Saturday afternoon keynote speaker, Carol Jago, we convene to learn the ways in which school leaders and classroom teachers, those focused on equity, better educate all students, from our most vulnerable to our most secure, from our youngest charges to those about to graduate from high school.
And we convene to learn ways in which entire school communities work toward this goal by acknowledging that children vary, thus our ways of working must vary, too. As Dr. Noguera said in his introduction to his revered text, Excellence Through Equity, “An equity tide lifts all boats.” Now is the time to let desire, equitable practices, and success for every student meet on the grounds of our beloved Asilomar—to lift, as well as uplift, us all.

Our most recent conference spotlighted those who inspire colleagues and students every day. The current educational landscape calls for 21st Century learning with more rigorous Common Core Standards. Last year’s conference offerings demonstrated how educators can meet these demands in ways that inspire students, colleagues and themselves. Each participant met over 3 days in one small-group session that focused on a single topic in teaching reading and writing. This focused attention on one area of interest allowed attendees to more deeply consider implementation of strategies discussed.
