Four-day gathering gives K-12 teachers the tools, support and best practices they need to help students excel in the classroom
Some 3,000 educators from across the nation will convene in Orlando later this month for the 37th annual Making Schools Work Conference hosted by the Southern Regional Education Board.
ATLANTA – Open educational resources could help increase the number of students who can afford and finish college, but the still-evolving practice will have to cross some regional and national hurdles first, a panel said here last week.
Once and for all, leaders must clear a lifelong path in education for every student, building stronger connections across the education system, SREB President Stephen Pruitt told a nationwide online audience on March 17.
If more students don’t find their way through different types of college and career training throughout their lives, the American workforce could falter and employee shortages will only continue to grow, Pruitt said during The Hill newspaper’s Future of Education summit.
Every SREB state needs more students to complete two- and four-year college degrees and earn valuable career credentials.
But how can states build a stronger bridge for students from high school to college?
In partnership with SREB, Alabama’s high schools and community colleges have found a way. The strategy is helping more students succeed and avoid getting stuck in remedial education courses in college — one of the more intractable problems in higher education.
