Stocks in this article: NYT

The New York Times announced today their second annual education conference, Schools for Tomorrow. The conference, taking place on Thursday, Sept. 13, will focus on “Building a Better Teacher,” and will explore ways government, the private sector and parents can create and support the best teachers possible. The Times will bring together 400 educators, government officials, philanthropists and investors to participate in workshops and debates on stage and in the audience.

This conference will debate how to attract the best teachers from college (or earlier), through training and ongoing professional development. Sessions will address teacher support networks, compensation, unions and measurement and bonus structures, as well as the technologies that function as tools to help evaluate and enhance the skills of teachers.

The conference will also feature an Inventors Lab, showcasing six technical applications curated by the program team, and three Inspiration presentations from high-achieving teachers.

New York Times Op-Ed columnists David Brooks and Nick Kristof will join former Times executive editor and now Op-Ed columnist Bill Keller, to moderate discussions with distinguished leaders in education and business on topics covering issues around changing the perception of the teaching profession, measuring performance, how to improve instruction and the future of the teaching role.

Aneesh Chopra, former chief technology officer for The United States, will deliver the keynote address. Other featured speakers include Linda Darling-Hammond, Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Education, Stanford University; Kaya Henderson, Chancellor, District of Columbia Public Schools; and Dennis M. Walcott, Chancellor of the New York City Department of Education.

“From social worker to mentor to educator, now more than ever, our teachers are being asked to do more to prepare America’s students for college and beyond,” said Gerald Marzorati, the Times editor who is overseeing the conference program. “This year’s conference will tackle these hot-button issues, bringing together thought leaders in education and business to determine the best way to prepare our finest teachers for the future of education.”
