Creating Globally Competitive Schools

On Tuesday, July 12, 2016 from 3:30-4:30 PM, (ET), I will be interviewed by the National Dropout Prevention Center on the topic of education’s role in building the global economy. What skills does  a world class teacher possess? What does a world class school look like?

 Meeting 21C workplace needs for both employers and employees requires not only an awareness of the role our nation’s workforce plays in the current global economy, but also planning and implementation of initiatives designed to ensure that future workplace needs can be met. Young people can also be more engaged in school when they recognize that schoolwork is directly related to their unique goals and outcomes post-graduation. I will address the need for schools to become globally competitive.
