Registration has begun for the Spring Education Conference, the union’s hallmark education event of the school year, which will be held at the New York Hilton in midtown Manhattan on Saturday, May 18.

Spend the day with hundreds of fellow public school educators from across the city at a gathering focused on the key political and educational issues facing our schools.

Network at breakfast and at a gala luncheon in the grand ballroom and choose from among six brand-new in-depth workshops, all designed for “21st century learners.” This year’s CTLE workshops will cover math, literacy, technology, access for students with disabilities and strategies to make schools safe and supportive for all students. There is even a timely workshop to learn about how you can reduce your student debt burden with the new Student Debt Relief Program for UFT members only.

The conference registration fee is $50 with an additional fee of $30 for teachers and $15 for paras and nonteachers to take a two-hour workshop for CTLE credit.

Students and teachers in career and technical education high schools are busy preparing the exhibits they will showcase in the popular Americas Hall exhibit area that will be open all day. Conference attendees will be able to fill shopping bags with classroom resources supplied by exhibitors, sample tasty treats whipped up by culinary students, marvel at students’ technological expertise and enjoy a manicure compliments of cosmetology students. These high school students take pride in showing their skills, and there’s something for everyone to admire.

Start the day at the morning town hall, where UFT President Michael Mulgrew will engage in a spirited conversation with a noted political or educational figure and members will ask questions from the floor.

The deadline to register is April 26.
