- Synopsis of the presentation [.pdf]
Your participation is key to the process of decision-making for policymakers who are focusing on teacher quality in Minnesota. Creating an informed understanding of the issues is the goal of this event.
Moderated by professor Karen Seashore Louis, the Robert Holmes Beck Chair of Ideas in Education and national education policy expert, a panel of select Minnesota experts will benchmark the issues for stakeholders and policymakers.
Mistilina Sato, the college’s lead faculty authority and researcher in the redesign of teacher education;
Valeria Silva, the new St. Paul schools superintendent;
Peter Hutchinson, president of the Bush Foundation;
Garnet Franklin, teacher specialist with Education Minnesota;
Matt Kramer, president of Teach for America; and others.
One challenge for this diverse group of experts will be to translate the information they present into policy recommendations for the audience.
