The Great Conversation!

The Great Conversation

A video series for our times 

The Great Conversation™ is informative, entertaining, and inspiring. The series is hosted by Jamie Vollmer, a nationally acclaimed public education advocate and author of the award-winning book, Schools Cannot Do It Alone. Jamie’s stated goal is two-fold:

"First, to increase support for the people working in our public schools. We are asking them to educate the most diverse, distracted, demanding generation of students the world has ever seen! They need all the help they can get. Second, to encourage the staff and community work together to help all students get the education they need to succeed as adults."
