AAUW is proud to host Secretary of Education Arne Duncan for our “tweet-up” (a meet-up on Twitter) this Friday, January 6, at 4 p.m. EST.
Jan 5th, 2012 by

To kick off 2012 and recognize the 40th anniversary of Title IX this year, AAUW is proud to host Secretary of Education Arne Duncan for our “tweet-up” (a meet-up on Twitter) this Friday, January 6, at 4 p.m. EST.

Though best known for creating opportunities for women and girls in athletics, Title IX affects all areas of education. This is an exclusive chance to have your questions about education equity for girls and boys answered directly by the secretary. Russlynn Ali, assistant secretary for civil rights at the Department of Education, and Lisa Maatz, AAUW’s director of public policy and government relations, will also answer questions. Submit yours via AAUW’s Facebook page, tweet them using the hashtag #T9Talk, or write them in the comments section below.

During the tweet-up, priority consideration will be given to questions that address equity in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM); sexual harassment and bullying; athletics; career and technical training; and education for pregnant women and students who have children.

We can’t wait to hear from you! Be sure to follow the event on Friday to see if your question is asked. You can even watch a live stream on the Department of Education’s website.
