EWA Interview: Andreas Schleicher on Teaching

Dr. Andreas Schleicher sits down with EWA’s Dale Mezzacappa to discuss how other countries approach tough teaching assignments (0:01), what unionization means outside the United States (2:54), and what other countries can learn from this country (6:20).

Dr. Schleicher is special adviser on education policy to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s secretary-general. As head of OECD’s programs on indicators and analysis in the Directorate for Education, he is also responsible for the development and analysis of benchmarks on the performance of education systems and on the impact of knowledge and skills on economic and social outcomes.

This interview was recorded at EWA’s 64th National Seminar in April 2011 and was made possible in part by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
