International Summit on the Teaching Profession
Each spring since 2011, education ministers, master teachers, national union leaders, and education organization leaders have convened from countries with high performing and rapidly improving educational systems for an international summit on the teaching profession. The purpose of the gatherings is to identify best practices worldwide that strengthen the teaching profession and raise student achievement. Summit organizers, in collaboration with Asia Society, produce a publication each year on key lessons.
Dr. Linda Darling Hammond speaks with us about how to develop and sustain a high-quality teaching force.
We hope that the reports and interviews provide knowledge and experience useful to school systems eager to create the conditions for all students to succeed in today’s interconnected world.
