From our friends at Learning Policy Institute:
You’re invited to join the Learning Policy Institute (LPI), the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) for a webinar on Wednesday, October 26 at 12 p.m. (EDT) on Building a Strong, Sustainable Teacher Workforce. The one-hour interactive session will feature LPI President Dr. Linda-Darling Hammond, who will present findings from recently released LPI reports that explore the causes and consequences of teacher shortages and provide an in-depth review of the research on promoting a stable and high-quality teacher workforce. Dr. Darling-Hammond will be joined by Representative Robert Behning, Chairman of the Education Committee for the Indiana House of Representatives, and South Dakota Secretary of Education Melody Schopp, both of whom will share steps their states have taken to address teacher shortages and strengthen the teaching profession.
The webinar is part of an ongoing effort by LPI to inform a national conversation about the critical role a strong and stable teacher workforce plays in ensuring that every student has access to an equitable and empowering education. On September 15, LPI convened leaders from government, education, business, and parent and community organizations for a forum on Solving Teacher Shortages: Attracting and Retaining a Talented and Diverse Teaching Workforce. The day-long event included presentations on LPI’s latest research and in-depth sessions on critical issues related to teacher recruitment and retention. We’ve also released an interactive tool that provides a state-by-state look at key indicators of teacher supply and demand and the equitable distribution of teachers.

Register today for the October 26 webinar.
