Here’s what ERN and DFER did right before and right after the release of the regs.

Here's what ERN and DFER did right before and right after the release of the regs.
1. A case for the policies contained in the regs via a series of slides.
2. After the regs were issued:
a. A run-down of all media coverage (DFER was quoted in both the New York Times and the Washington Post)
b. A run-down of opposing arguments to the regs and counters to those opposing arguments.
3. Last, but not least, we did a cool video with Teach Plus featuring teachers making the case for teacher prep reform. On YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNv4o2AlwYs
