The education party of the year is upon us and you're invited

To celebrate our second year of existence and to ensure that we plow boldly into the future, we are throwing another party! It is next Wednesday evening, Nov. 17. It will be just like last year’s party — big names, top educators, and arch rivals sharing drinks, food, and rich conversation — with two twists.

First, this time you will have even more chances to support GothamSchools. And second, you will also have to act quickly because we can only admit a limited number of people to the party.

Remember, we are a nonprofit financed almost entirely by philanthropic contributions. We literally cannot operate without the support of generous readers like you. To that end, we are charging for tickets this year, with a starting price of $50. Please purchase yours here and consider making an additional donation, too. Thanks to a challenge grant from a generous donor, every dollar we raise for this event will be fully matched.

Another reason to come: Our featured speaker will be Doug Lemov, author of “Teach Like a Champion,” subject of a story I wrote for the New York Times Magazine, and a GothamSchools reader. Some other surprise guests that I can’t yet name will also pop in.
