Boy Brains & Engagement Conference

Recent education research has focused much more on the learning, social outcomes and schooling experiences of boys. Boys are more likely to be held back, suspended or expelled — or to drop out of school altogether. This conference helps educators understand and support the unique neurochemistry of the male brain, increase engagement, improve academic outcomes and encourage a post-secondary educational mindset.

The Boy Brains & Engagement Conference is part of the 2019 Innovative Schools Summit Atlanta. Attendees receive complimentary access to all Summit sessions on a space-available basis. The five Summit conferences include: Boy Brains & Engagement National Conference, At-Risk & Struggling Students Conference, Innovative Teach Strategies Conference ,Wired Differently Conference & the School Discipline Conference
