      The Stanford Educational Leadership Institute would like to cordially
      invite you to attend The Coming of Age of Educational Leadership
      conference on Thursday, November 4 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at
      Stanford.

      The conference is being held in response to the growing demands
      placed on educational leaders who are charged with developing and
      managing effective schools in the face of dwindling budgets,
      narrowing definitions of student achievement, and more diverse
      student populations. The purpose of the conference is to highlight
      the need to increase the leadership capacity of the education sector
      to improve instruction and the organization designs that support
      teaching and learning. The audience will include superintendents,
      principals, business leaders, philanthropists, policymakers, and
      professors of education and business. Attendees will learn about ways
      in which education leaders are being asked to change the way they
      manage schools and redesign them for greater effectiveness and will
      become aware of 'best practices' for education leadership that can
      support achievement for all students.

      The day will include a mix of plenary and breakout sessions with both
      keynote speakers and panelists who are leaders in organizational
      change and school redesign. The keynote speaker will be John
      Morgridge, Chairman of Cisco Systems. Other speakers will include
      Tony Alvarado, former Superintendent of San Diego Public Schools,
      Tony Bryk, Spencer Chair in Organizational Studies at the Stanford
      School of Business and the School of Education, James A. Phills Jr.,
      Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior and Director of the
      Center for Social Innovation at the Stanford University School of
      Business and Linda Darling-Hammond, Professor of Education at the
      Stanford University School of Education.
