IALA Conference

The International Association for Learning Alternatives held its 34th annual conference April 6-8, 2005 in Waterloo in conjunction with the Iowa Association of Alternative Education. Everyone enjoyed a well-planned and stimulating conference. Keynoters were Gary Phillips and Ann White. Both were awesome and inspiring. A wide variety of breakout sessions featured practical, experiential, charter schools, powerful instructional strategies, differentiating learning, NCLB issues, STARS youth organization and many others. Tom Keating, Minnesota teacher of the year presented which was interesting as he was the first such from an alternative school.

Next year's conference will be June 29-July1, 2006 in beautiful Ocean Shores, Washington. Save the date. Watch for information.
