New Videos! Linda Darling-Hammond Discusses NCTAF and Key Issues in Education Reform
Last week, Linda Darling-Hammond, co-founder of NCTAF and current board member, came to our offices to discuss the organizations history, its future, and some key issues in education reform. Darling-Hammond, the Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Teaching and Teacher Education at Stanford University, talked about why NCTAF was founded and the policy environment in which NCTAF’s seminal report, What Matters Most, was written and about the continuing relevancy of its findings. Darling-Hammond also outlined her ideas for how to increase the teacher retention rate, a major problem that NCTAF documented in a 2007 study. These conversations are captured in two videos that can be viewed on NCTAF’s YouTube Channel.
