Additional attendees will also include Lisa Andrejko, superintendent, Quakertown Community Schools; Scott Benson, program officer, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; Michael Horn, co-founder, Innosight Institute; and Chris Lehmann, principal, Science Leadership Academy. Jonathan Schorr, partner, NewSchools Venture Fund, will moderate the panel, titled “Blending Classroom and Online Learning: Best of Both Worlds?”.
