World Class: How to Build a 21st-Century School System Webinar/EventJuly 12, 2018
In this webinar panelists will discus the key question behind Andreas Schleicher’s new book, World Class: How to Build a 21st-Century School System. He writes, “Every economic age has its core asset. In the agricultural age that asset was land; in the industrial age it was capital; and in our times, it is the knowledge, skills and character qualities of people. This core asset remains largely untapped and undervalued. It’s time for us to change that.” Schleicher examines the many successes from which to learn, looking seriously and dispassionately at good practice in countries around the world, all to understand what works in which contexts. Join the Alliance for Excellent Education (All4Ed) for a spirited and thoughtful conversation between Schleicher and All4Ed’s president Bob Wise.
The Alliance for Excellent Education, Committee for Education Funding, and Coalition for a College- and Career-Ready America held a webinar on September 14, during which panelists discussed the impact of the federal budget debate on education. The webinar (1) provided an explanation of the overall budget process; (2) explained how sequestration would be implemented and its potential impact on early childhood, K–12 and higher education; and (3) discussed what advocates can do to discourage Congress from making major cuts to education programs. Panelists also addressed questions submitted by viewers from across the country.
