I’ve Been Appointed To The California “Educator Excellence Task Force”

| 2 Comments

California State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson has just created an “Educator Excellence Task Force” and I, along with a number of talented teachers, have been appointed to it. Dr. Linda Darling-Hammond and Superintendent Chris Steinhauser of Long Beach Unified School District are the Task Force’s co-chairs.

The Task Force is supposed to make recommendations in a number of areas, including teacher evaluation, professional development, teacher preparation, and career development.

I’ve been around along enough to wonder how seriously “task force” recommendations are taken, but we’ve got a very good State Superintendent in Tom Torlakson, and you can’t go wrong when Linda Darling-Hammond is co-chairing it.

I’ll keep readers posted….

  1. A “task force” eh? If you’re issued body armor and personal assault vehicles, then I wouldn’t worry about how seriously they’ll take your recommendations :)

    Seriously though, congratulations, Larry!
