Major Conference on Alternatives

The International Association for Learning Alternatives will hold its annual conference at Ocean Shores, Shilo Inn.jpg Washington June 29, July 1, 2006. This meaty and significant conference features the theme, Education for Everyone, and emphasizes that many types of alternatives are necessary to meet different learning needs and student-centered philosophies of education: magnet school, charter schools, homeschooling, democratic schools, virtual schools, Montessori, and more.
