Subject: [betaNYC] Tech Education Panel Thursday
 
Hi everyone,

I'm passionated about all things education and after attending a tech school for undergrad I realized the stark disparities in tech training kids get in K-12. There will be a stellar panel this Thursday talking about just this. Please add your voice to this conversation!
