The National Association of Independent Schools 2015 Conference in 12 Tweets
The National Association of Independent Schools' annual conference took place this week in Boston. This year, speakers and attendees tackled new issues, such as the ins and outs of sharing blended learning courses between schools, and perennial issues like student recruitment.
Ethnic and gender diversity among teachers and school leadership was also a major theme. I've curated the Twitter musings from conference-goers that touch on all of these topics:

Parent networks far more effective in recruiting students than some guy in an admission office #naisac— Charters & Choice (@ChartersNChoice) February 27, 2015
In total, 5,500 people attended the conference, a new record for NAIS according to its president, John Chubb. The organization's first conference was held in 1963.
