What Matters Now: A New Compact for Teaching and Learning


 Wednesday, August 10, What Matters Now:  A New Compact for Teaching and Learning -- the 20th Anniversary of NCTAF's groundbreaking report entitled What Matters Most:  Teaching for America's Future

Former U. S. Secretary of Education Richard W. Riley, Co-Chair of the National Commission on Teaching & America's Future, invites you to join him and his fellow NCTAF Commissioners for the release of What Matters Now: A New Compact for Teaching and Learning. 


The National Commission on Teaching & America's Future is calling for a new compact with teachers in order to capitalize on this moment in time when policy and practice are shifting toward more engaging and relevant teaching and learning for all students. Teachers will have more agency and new roles and leadership opportunities, and will in turn be supported by a system of aligned resources and supports. These efforts will be supported by a new shared accountability that encourages collaboration, use of data within a context of continuous improvement, and teacher-led professional learning.


NCTAF's Commissioners will issue a collective call to action around this vision for teaching and learning. The new report will provide guidance on how to migrate to an education system where schools are reorganized in ways that support teaching, drive learning, and provide every student with a strong foundation to build a bright future.

To be held from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT) in the Capitol View Rotunda, Ninth Floor, 101 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC in the office of Nelson, Mullins, Riley & Scarborough
