Portland Teachers Improving Education

program date: 
Mon, 07/28/2014

Bill Resnick continues his conversation with Gwen Sullivan and Elizabeth Thiel of the Portland Association of Teachers. They discuss the importance of teachers' academic freedom to design classes tailored to the needs of their diverse students, as well as the importance of making sure that funding allocated to education is actually spent on classroom learning. They dispel common misconceptions about charter schools and public schools, and describe what professional development should mean, and what it often means in practice. The discussion concludes with the recognition that to improve education we need to end poverty and inequality, and that this will entail teachers coordinating with other unions and other movements.
