  1. If at some point these presentations are made public to those of us who aren’t social studies teachers, I hope you’ll be able to share that with all of us. While there’s no professional reason for me to be there, the topics are very interesting to those of us doing justice work, and I’m grateful you’re presenting them!

    1. It would be a gift beyond measure to have the entire conference transcript available to the public. I eagerly await same. Thank you so much.
