White Plains, NY — May 17, 2013 — Pace University’s School of Education and the regional Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) will present a conference, “Ensuring Learning for All Students: Sharing Successful Practices for Students Who Struggle” on May 22 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Pace Graduate Center in White Plains. This conference is geared toward K-16 teachers, pre-service teachers, students, educational professionals and parents of students who struggle.
