Capitol Hill Briefing: Addressing Equity in Teaching Through Professional Learning
October 10, 2019
Thursday, October 10, 2019
Noon – 1:30 pm ET
Watch the livestream below.
All of America’s teachers need access to high-quality professional learning and support to address students’ cultural contexts, social emotional development and an ability to engage with demanding academic content. All too often, the teachers of the students who need the most support are in schools with the most limited resources for professional learning. We can turn the tide by providing ongoing, collaborative and job-embedded professional learning for all teachers and leaders.
Hear from the field about the challenges schools and districts are facing, how they have intervened with professional learning and what the impact has been. Specifically, this panel will focus on how Title II-A supported initiatives are making a difference in recruiting and retaining teachers and leaders and increasing student achievement.
