U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will be meeting with teachers in a town hall meeting format this Thursday July 29, 2010 11:00 AM EDT-12:00 PM EDT (10AM – 11AM CST) to discuss the future of teaching in the United States.
The meeting will be broadcast on XM (130) and Siruis (110) satellite radio stations and moderated by Tim Farley, host of POTUS’s “The Morning Briefing”.
A couple of good things about this event: 1) There will be a large “cross-section of public schools, drawing from a variety of districts, grade levels, and disciplines” participating in the audience. 2) For those of us who do not subscribe to satellite radio, XM Radio provides a Free Online Trial so we will be able to listen to this event free of charge.
Prior to the event, everyone is invited to leave questions and comments at the Ed.gov Blog
“Looking forward to Thursday’s event, we invite teachers to consider some of the questions that the Secretary and the studio audience and listeners will discuss — questions such as…
-What can we do to enhance the teaching profession?
-How can we do a better job of encouraging and rewarding excellent teaching?
-How can we do a better job of measuring success?
Looking forward to a good town hall meeting and hopefully a strong voice from educators on learning (not teaching).
