The Aspen Institute on Educational Reform

By September 15, 2008Education and Training

The Aspen Institute is holding a national education summit today here in Washington, blogging the proceedings and remarks here. The agenda is here, and the day is being webcast here. It’s also on CSPAN-3.

NAM President John Engler participated in a panel discussion this morning, “Educational performance; what are the implications for the nation’s economy, global competitiveness, security, healthcare?” A clear way of making the point about accountability in education: If a school’s football team has a couple of losing seasons in a row, the coach gets fired. If the same school has the equivalent of only losing seasons when it comes to their students’ achievements, no one loses his job.
