“Teaching: Reclaiming the Craft” explores matters of teacher and student voice to facilitate a richer dialogue between educators, students, and the media outside of confines of academic schedules and news deadlines.” Our keynote speaker will be Dale Russakoff, author of The Prize: Who’s in Charge of America’s Schools, which chronicles the failed outcomes of Mark Zuckerberg’s gift of $100 million to the Newark, New Jersey school district. While well-intended, the plan did not include sufficient teacher input, community involvement, or social service support. 

Ms. Russakoff’s keynote will be followed by a panel discussion on teacher voice, and a second on student voice. The sessions between Oregon educators, students, journalists, and the public will focus on societal narratives about teaching, student achievement, and school reform. Panelist include: Hanna Vaandering (OEA president), Betsy Hammond (Oregonian) and Rob Manning (OPB), as well as current teachers and students. Hillary Lake, a reporter at KATU-TV and SOJC doctoral program graduate, will serve as moderator.
