Teacher collective bargaining is a central and often controversial element of American public education. Teacher contracts frequently include provisions prescribing the way teachers are assigned to schools. What are the consequences of these important provisions for schools and students? Some researchers contend they undermine school quality. Others say they don't. Who's right? Two national experts, Howard Nelson of the American Federation of Teachers and Michelle Rhee of The New Teacher Project, will square off on this timely topic in this important Education Sector Debate.
Join us for this important discussion featuring:
Andrew J. Rotherham, Co-director, Education Sector (introductions)
Bess Keller, Assistant Editor, Education Week (as moderator)
F. Howard Nelson, Lead Researcher in the Office of the President, American Federation of Teachers
Michelle Rhee, CEO and President, The New Teacher Project
