The Hilton at the Ballpark is sold out on Saturday night because a baseball game is in town. The average room rate for Saturday night is $309. However, since WLU is going to be meeting in the hotel, they have agreed to take 20 addition rooms from their inventory for us to use on Saturday night, but the cost will be $195 for that night only. You will need to book early to receive that rate.
Registration deadline is July 13, 2012. Anyone wishing to register after this date must register onsite in St. Louis.

Reclaiming Literacy: Supporters of Public Education Strategizing Together
Thursday, July 19 11:45 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
($65.00 lunch included)
Corporate interests will continue to trump the rights of children to a well-rounded, fully funded public education, and access to a meaningful, responsive literacy curriculum . . . UNLESS WE ACT NOW! This summer we invite educational activists, Save Our Schools supporters, and whole language advocates to collaborate in planning strategies for resistance against corporate control of schools and literacy.
