Preparing Teachers & School Leaders: Meeting the Challenges of the 21st Century (session #335)
While the recruitment and preparation of teachers and school principals have raised major challenges in the United States and often have been deeply contentious issues, there is strong agreement that solving the dilemma is a necessary centerpiece of effective reform. This talk will discuss the challenges we face, what we know about what works, and new directions that are emerging, recommending critical steps for the future. New York Assemblywoman Barbara Clark will present the 2010 ECS James Bryant Conant Award to Linda Darling-Hammond.
