Panel: “Watching Teachers Work”

Debates rage over how to identify good teachers, but few consider using information that can measure effectiveness while also helping teachers improve. New York City is a recent flashpoint with the controversial publication of flawed data rating the city’s public school teachers. The time is ripe for a conversation that envisions new ways of evaluating teachers using results from standardized, valid and reliable observations.

Join us for an event at New York University that will spotlight recommendations from the New America Foundation’s latest paper on teacher effectiveness, Watching Teachers Work: Using Observation Tools to Promote Effective Teaching in the Early Years and Early Grades. With a panel of New York educators, we will explore how observation can be harnessed to improve public education through PreK-3rd grade reforms and across the PreK-12 spectrum.

Space is limited, so RSVPs are required. Thank you to NYU’s Steinhardt School for its generous support of this event.
