How can policy lead to smart investments in PD that works? Please join NNSTOY, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, and the Center on Great Teachers and Leaders for a conversation about how the findings from the latest research in Our Good to Great series can inform your national, state, and district policy to strengthen professional development.
There is a national consensus that today’s students need more opportunities to build skills in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) across the PreK-12 grade span. Teachers are a critical piece for providing those opportunities, but barriers abound. On March 16, 2017, New America, the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop, the American Institutes for Research, and 100Kin10 convened STEM experts for a wide-ranging discussion of the ideas emerging from these reports and initiatives—and what they mean for policy making at the local, state, and federal levels.
