Please join Brookings Mountain West and Abriendo Caminos/Opening Pathways for Students of Color into the Teaching Profession for a very special, though also very informal, lunch-time (BYOL (bring your own lunch) gathering with Dr. Michael Hansen, Brookings Senior Fellow in Governance Studies & Director of the Brown Center on Education Policy.
Thursday, October 11, 2018
12:30 at CEB 238 (see building and parking map)
Please RSVP here!
Dr. Michael Hansen is a senior fellow at Brookings Institution and the director of the Brown Center on Education Policy. A labor economist by training, he has conducted original research on the teacher quality, value-added measurement, teacher evaluation, and teacher responses to incentives and accountability using state longitudinal data systems. Other areas of research include school turnaround and STEM learning.
During the BYOL gathering Dr. Hansen will speak about Teacher Diversity and Achievement Gaps in Nevada: Nevada has one of the largest achievement gaps between racial/ethnic groups and socioeconomic groups, in addition to having one of the largest gaps in representation between the student population and teacher workforce. This lecture will discuss the emerging evidence between student and teacher matching on racial dimensions and the impact on a myriad of student outcomes, and discuss policy strategies that the state and districts can pursue to promote a more diverse teacher workforce to help mitigate these gaps.
