Thanks to a friend for sending along this letter (Download essay_contest1.pdf) from the high schools AIO Pam Randall about a January mandatory "mini conference" that requires not just attendance, but ... effort. According to the flyer, schools are supposed to have an essay contest in which students tell how their principals help close the achievement gap. Then everyone goes to a conference and some of the essays are presented, along with "Katie [sic] Haycock" from the Ed Trust. Oh, yeah, the deadline for all this is Thursday.
