Online Collaboration on Ed Reform for New Jersey Teachers

From the New Jersey Charter School Association:

Raising teacher voices in New Jersey:   New Jersey teachers have a unique opportunity to help shape education reform.  All New Jersey teachers are invited to join in an on-line collaboration-- VIVA Idea Exchange-- http://bit.ly/vivanj to talk about school-wide accountability.  You will have the opportunity to connect with fellow teachers across the state and the researchers at the University of Pennsylvania profiled in Paul Tough's new book, How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity and the Power of Character, to give your take on the hot topic of resilience and character development.  Share your ideas about how schools can be deliberate about preparing students to succeed not just in graduating from high school but persisting in college and otherwise becoming self-sufficient adults.  And, help New Jersey create policies that ensure students develop judgement and skills for success.  Join here http://bit.ly/vivanj and make your voice heard.
