First Annual Conference In Washington D.C.
The Separation of School & State Alliance will be holding it's First Annual Conference in Washington D.C. on November 10-12, 1995.
That this conference immediately follows the IECA Conference in the same city is purely coincidental. There is no relationship that
I know of between the two organizations. The theme of the Conference is, Why We Need to Get Government Out of Education Now! Speakers
include John Taylor Gatto, author of "Dumbing Us Down" and 1991 New York State Teacher of the Year, Sheldon Richman, author of Separating
School & State, Senior Editor, Cato Institute, Washington D.C., and Joseph Sobran, Nationally syndicated columnist, Burke, Virginia.
