Slideshow: GOOD, Education Experts Talk High Expectations
On three Thursdays over the past month—at our kickoff event on August 19, our discussion about enabling creativity on September 9, and our discussion about content on September 16—we've gathered to talk about ensuring that all kids are on track to receive the 21st century education they deserve.
Yesterday's final panel focused on how to urge students to set high expectations for academic achievement. The panelists were: JB Schramm (College Summit), Estelle Reyes (Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship), Paul Miller (Teach for America), and Steve Zimmer (Board of Education, LAUSD)
Check out our slideshow of photos from last night's event. And thanks to everyone who came out for any or all of the GOOD education events. You made them a resounding success and got us really excited about the hard (but rewarding) work ahead of all of us.
