Not So Elementary: Primary School Teacher Quality in Top-Performing Education Systems
July 19, 2016
10 am- 11:30 am, EST
Not So Elementary, a new report from the Center on International Education Benchmarking (CIEB) at the National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE), looks at how top-performing education systems ensure that their elementary school teachers have deep content knowledge in the subjects they teach. In the report, Australian researcher Ben Jensen finds that jurisdictions that make significant investments in the preparation, education and training of elementary school teachers set up their students early for success.
Join us for a virtual release of the report, during which NCEE president Marc Tucker will interview report author Ben Jensen and moderate a panel of leading U.S. teacher preparation experts on the current state of the U.S. teacher education and how lessons from the top performers can be applied in the U.S. Audience Q&A to follow.
Expert panelists will include:
• Marc Tucker, President and CEO, NCEE (moderator)
• Ben Jensen, CEO, Learning First (report author)
• Sharon Robinson, President and CEO, American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education
• Lee Shulman, Professor Emeritus, Stanford University, President Emeritus, The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching
• Gary Sykes, Senior Research Director, Understanding Teaching Quality Center, Educational Testing Service, Professor Emeritus, Michigan State University
