On March 25, the Alliance held a webinar on the findings of the 2010 MetLife Survey of the American Teacher released last month in two parts. Part 1: Clearing the Path examines the importance of being college and career ready, what this level of preparation includes, and what it may take to get there. Part 2: Teaching Diverse Learners looks at differences in student needs, how teachers address them, and how well students feel their needs are being met. Participants discussed the survey findings and their implications for shaping educational policies, including key elements in the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the nation’s primary federal law governing K–12 education.
Below is a highlights video of the event with clips from Dana Markow, PhD, Vice President, Youth and Education Research, Harris Interactive; Kelly Kovacic, California’s 2010 Teacher of the Year, The Preuss School, University of California–San Diego; Susan Traiman, Director of Public Policy, Business Roundtable; and William R.
