This webinar series will focus on three areas where advocates can advance education equity in their state. Each webinar will outline key questions to ask policymakers and ways that advocates can stay engaged in the ESSA implementation process.
Who’s Teaching Whom? Increasing Access to Strong Teachers and Improving Teacher Diversity
Date: Thursday, February 15
Time: 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM PST
As all parents and students know, teachers matter. Although state leaders have invested substantial resources and capacity in improving the overall caliber of their teaching workforce, they have done little to address challenges that are critical to the success of low-income students and students of color. In this webinar, participants will learn about opportunities under ESSA to push their states to address the issues of disparities in access to strong teaching and a lack of diversity in our teacher workforce and what questions to ask their state education leaders to prompt action.
Presenters will include:
Davis Dixon, P-12 Research Associate, The Education Trust
Rachel Metz, Teacher Quality Data Analyst, The Education Trust
