This year's AERO Conference looks like it is going to be one of our best ever. We have a wide variety of keynoters and workshops, a day of TED-like minitalks, and several documentary debuts. People are coming from at least 25 states and eight countries. We hoping for even more registrations. You shouldn't miss this AERO Conference!
Tomorrow is the last day you can register at a discounted rate. After that we will go up to $300 for the 5 day conference, still quite a bargain! And there are still special rates for students, volunteers and low income participants. There is no minimum meal plan which also saves you money. You can eat in the cafeteria at regular college prices or on your own. The rate to stay in the dorms is a quarter of what you might expect at a nearby New York hotel.
Don't miss keynotes by famed author Jonathan Kozol, MET Schools founder Dennis Littke, unschool expert Daynaa Martin, and minority unschooling expert Akilah Richards. Peter Gray will keynote and have a miniconference for us with his Alliance for Self-Directed Education. John Gatto will create a dramatic talk for the AERO conference, his first presentation in several years.
We'll have minitalks by CASA Principal Jamaal Bowman, Superintendent Michael Hynes, Pioneering alternative school founder Dave Lehman, Australian school founder Jane McDonald, How to Talk to Little Kids Will Listen Joanna Faber, Brenna Gibson Redpath, on urban homeschooling, and Manisha Snoyer, who will talk about her Cottage Class Program for new microschools. You can now listen to her new AERO podcast here.
People who wish can get 32 hours of continuing education credits from Antioch University, or even graduate credits!
There's much more. So register now for the AERO Conference, August 3-6 at Long Island University's beautiful C.W. Post College in Brookville, New York.
