NEA creates new panel to study teaching profession
| Dec 13, 2010
The National Education Association (NEA) announced that it is creating a national, independent commission to study the teaching profession and to make recommendations on maximizing teacher and teaching effectiveness. The new Commission on Effective Teachers and Teaching (CETT) will use the wisdom and experience of 21 accomplished teachers (supported by researchers, policymakers, and academicians) who will examine the policies and practices governing the teaching profession and craft a new teacher-centered vision of teaching and the teaching profession. The panel will be chaired by Madaline “Maddie” Fennel, 2007 Nebraska Teacher of the Year and fourth-grade teacher from Omaha, Nebraska. For more information about CETT, visit the NEA website.
