Ready To Teach: EWA Seminar For Education Journalists

How well is America teaching its teachers? As accountability pressures on the nation’s teaching force mount, scrutiny of colleges of education is intensifying as well. 

On Saturday, Oct. 27 at the University of Minnesota, the Education Writers Association will hold a one-day seminar for journalists that will tackle some of these challenging issues.  We’ll look at the groundswell for teacher preparation programs to overhaul how aspiring educators are trained, and how those programs are being held newly accountable for how well their graduates perform on the job.

There are limited scholarships available to help cover your travel costs — including airfare and hotel — so be sure to apply early
