About This Event
 

Today, there is substantial interest in revamping how America’s teachers are prepared, evaluated, paid, and supported, fueling changes to state laws and district policies nationwide. Such efforts have been championed by the Obama administration’s Race to the Top program, by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation investments, and by reform-minded governors.



Meanwhile, emerging school models, especially those employing technology, are using teachers in new ways. Yet few policymakers, researchers, or advocates have explored whether today’s “teacher quality” reforms might hinder such inventive approaches to teaching in the years ahead. This conference will convene leading education thinkers and doers to discuss a series of new papers and to explore how policy, practice, and research can better facilitate and support tomorrow’s schools.

 

If you are unable to attend, we welcome you to watch the event live on this page. Full video will be posted within 24 hours.
