Thoughts on the national coversation around Public Education

This forum is set up to capture thoughts from CLE members as well as those who participate in the though leaders meeting on September 22-25, 2011.  Some sample topics include:

  • What is the narrative of education that serves us well? 
  • What messaging and partnerships are possible?
  • How can we bring journalists into issue-based conversations?
  • What is the role of journalism in shaping a narrative about education?  In what ways are journalists agents of change?
  • How can we become proactive rather than reactive to forces trying to destroy public education?
  • What is the story of education that elevates voices from inside the system? From community?
  • What primary strategies make sense?  What new models/approaches to our work are required?
  • What does it mean for education to be the next civil rights issue?
  • What do these educational issues look like in 10, 20 or 50 years?  Where are we heading?  What are we building? What kind of society are we creating and what’s the role of education?

Has anyone here heard of the KnowledgeWorks Foundation?  I just came across it and it looks like they have some interesting resources to add to this conversation.  Here's a federal education policy statement they put out, what do you think about it?

Here's a link to an article from the Seattle Times today (9-28-11), written by the Education writer Linda Shaw, that is appropriate for the conversation about Public Education, specifically about Teachers.  It gives a little bit of history as well as commentary on the current situation by many people closely involved in Education.  Let me know what you think.
