Education News Parents Can Use

Archived Video Webcast

Originally broadcast live on Tuesday, October 20, 2009 (info from US Dep Ed Homepage)

On October’s special edition of Education News Parents Can Use, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan engaged teachers across the country in a town hall forum about what’s working and what’s not working in our nation’s schools. During the live program, Arne listened to comments from a studio audience comprised entirely of local teachers, and he responded to telephone calls and emails from across the country.


I was there last Tuesday (many thanks to the AFT, WTU and DCPS for sending me there) with other educators from DC, VA and MD! It was a great experience meeting the US Dep't of Education Secretary Arne Duncan, and the Teaching Ambassadors of the US Dep't of Education. I have told many of my colleagues that aside from becoming a National Board Certified Teacher, my dream is to become a Teaching Ambasador. Is this a sign?

I will post a longer entry on this later!
