IRA Audio-Conference: Congressional Agenda for fall of 2007, Wednesday, Sept. 19, 8:00 PM EDT

What does the fall political landscape look like for reading education as Congress reconvenes? What is NCLB's schedule? How much money will the programs get?

Join Richard Long, IRA Director of Government Relations, in a live audio-conference on Wednesday, September 19, at 8:00 pm EDT, as he discusses the Congressional Legislative Agenda for the fall of 2007 and its impact on reading education. Dr. Long will brief callers for about 20 minutes and then answer questions.

This will be a free service, but registration is limited. Participants are asked to register by September 14 with btierney@reading.org to receive the call-in number and a Power Point set of slides.
