Emerging Issues Forum to Focus on Teachers, Teacher Quality
National education experts and policy leaders will join N.C. leaders to discuss how teacher quality impacts educational outcomes at the 29th annual Emerging Issues Forum.
This year’s forum, titled “Teachers and the Great Economic Debate,” is scheduled for Feb. 10-11 at the Raleigh Convention Center.
More than 150 K-12 educators and administrators from across North Carolina are expected to attend and take part in the discussion.
“We want to encourage research and open discussion of topics that impact our world,” said NC State Chancellor Randy Woodson.
Research shows that highly effective educators better prepare students for higher education and the workforce. Forum attendees will participate in discussion and develop action items for North Carolina.
“Each year, IEI has identified a topic that has meaning and directly relates to North Carolina’s economic competitiveness,” said Anita Brown-Graham, director of the Institute for Emerging Issues. “Highly effective teachers have a direct and lasting impact on our state’s economy.”
Although the Forum is sold out, live streaming will be available from the IEI website.
