Education Human Capital Roundtables

Overview

Education Human Capital Roundtables

Following up on the Teacher Preparation Commission, SREB is convening education human capital roundtables in several states. Roundtable members represent the boards, commissions and agencies charged with improving teacher preparation, educator development and the teaching pipeline. SREB helps roundtables hold challenging conversations on how to improve the quality of their teaching workforce through targeted recruitment, preparation, retention and professional growth strategies. 

When state leaders commit to establish a roundtable, SREB provides customized research and facilitates in-state convenings. Roundtable members develop recommendations for state policy action and create action plans.
