Please join the Alliance for Excellent Education for a webinar on the Asia Society’s Global Cities Education Network, which works to identify effective strategies in urban school systems in North America and Asia to transform learning and achieve equity.

The Global Cities Education Network benchmarks internationally informed practices that enable urban systems to provide the vast majority of students with the opportunity to attain high-level skills, regardless of their cultural or economic background. The panelists will discuss high-priority problems of practice—the need to develop and sustain a high-quality teaching force and improve the educational outcomes for low-performing and diverse students. They will discuss practice-based studies on these issues that offer potential solutions and policy options to meet these common challenges. Bob Wise, president of the Alliance and former governor of West Virginia, will moderate the discussion. Panelists will also address questions submitted by viewers from across the nation.

Panelists:

Linda Darling-Hammond, EdD, Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Education, Stanford University
Michael DeBell, School Board President, Seattle Public Schools
Anthony Jackson, PhD, Vice President for Education, Asia Society
