Listed on my Events page is the announcement about the annual Vancouver Island Parent Conference this coming Saturday, February 27th. This will be the first time I have attended, so I’m looking forward to it.
The conference is entitled Launching the Framework: Changing Our View of Education. The organizers and sponsors include the District Parent Advisory Councils of Greater Victoria, Sooke and the Cowichan Valley, the BC Confederation of Parent Council, School District 61 and the Vancouver Confederation of Parent Councils.
I’ll be interested in finding out how all these parent councils work together, and what the keynote speakers have to say about a new framework. Naturally, I will be listening for the impact of the promised changing view on children who are described as gifted. Watch for my report after the event.
