Liz Sciabarra, who put this terrific presentation together, runs the Brooklyn Tech Alumni Foundation. Before that she was headed up high school enrollment citywide at the DOE.
I saw Liz speak when my daughter Izzy was embarking on the high school journey and her words had the most positive, lasting effect of any I heard along the way. And bonus - this is being held at Brooklyn Tech so you get a chance to be in the school itself.
Liz told me 1000 or so people were at her last presentation so feel free to share this with friends. You can sign up here: https://secure.educationalnetworks.net/apps/s/index.jsp?ech=www.bths.edu&f=6189
