Secretary of Education Arne Duncan recently sat down with the folks at Match Teacher Residency. Watching my former classmate and instructor articulate the amazing work they do makes me so proud! On a sober note… Secretary Duncan admits openly that when it comes to teacher training, “We’re just not giving them the help, and support, and the coaching they need.” The federal government spends an estimated $2 billion on teacher PD a year. Estimate jumps to $5-6 billion at the state level. Still, he acknowledges that funding alone has not produced enough results.
