    Fall Education Summit

    Aspen, Colorada

    For 6 months, the Aspen Institute and SLLF collaborated on a study of education policy in America. We held focus groups and conducted in-depth phone interviews with scores of legislative leaders from all across the country.

    Legislators’ opinions about what's right and what's wrong with public education were at the core of this program. While in Aspen, we discussed ideas that may very well shape how states tackle the often-vexing issues that come under the heading of "education policy.” Participants learned from experts in the field about what is working in terms of student and classroom assessment, effective teacher education, the use of technology and “best practices.”
