CLEVELAND, OH, June 18, 2020: TFS Results announced new dates for its inaugural Education with Purpose Conference, now scheduled for October 12–13, 2021. The conference is designed to equip educators, employers, and stakeholders to shift the education and training paradigm in their community and region.

The Education with Purpose Conference will redefine America’s “college and career ready” goal by extolling the value of all postsecondary pathways — including college, specialized industry training, apprenticeships, and more. Trailblazers and key leaders in K–12 education will deliver a breadth of knowledge, with facilitated planning time for teams to adapt the best practices to their own context and challenges.
