TEACHING THE TEACHERS: ADVANCING ACADEMIC SUCCESS FOR ALL

Guest:  Julie Underwood, Retiring Dean of School of Education, UW Madison

Enrich lives, transform communities and better the world: That is the commitment the School of Education at UW-Madison has made in this rapidly shifting educational landscape. Grounded in the belief that a high-quality public education for all is vital to our contemporary democratic society, the School of Education continues to put evidence-based research and innovation into practice.

On this program, Julie Underwood, who is stepping aside after ten years as Dean of the UW School of Education, will share her perspective on education today including the importance of teacher preparedness, the role of testing, and how the Wisconsin Idea is working with school systems to close the achievement gap.
