When you think about an educator’s career from its early beginnings of entering the profession to achieving the status of “seasoned veteran,” what components are in place to support him/her throughout? Together and as a state, we need to flesh out the details of a high-quality talent management system – the lifecycle of an educator – and would love your input as we wrestle with the best, most efficacious way to support our educator workforce each step of the way. Currently, we’ve identified these five “buckets” as the right pieces to comprise this talent management system:
Attract: Pathways into the Profession & Elevating the Status of the Profession
Prepare: Initial Certification and Licensure & Program Approval and Accreditation
Recruit/Hire: Recruitment, Selection, and Hiring (to a district and into a position)
Develop/Support/Grow: Induction and Mentoring, Evaluation and Professional Learning, and Career Advancement
Retain: Educator Environment, Assignment and Transfer, Compensation, and Career Advancement
Please join us on December 4, 2016 as we delve deeply into imagining a high-quality talent management system for Rhode Island’s educators that both supports and nurtures educators and ultimately, the students they serve.
“Personalizing education might sound revolutionary, but this revolution is not new” (p. 254). It is a revolution that will take time; it is one that we should pay attention to.
Ken Robinson is one of the world’s most influential voices in education, and his 2006 TED Talk on the subject is the most viewed in the organization’s history…He argues for an end to our outmoded industrial educational system and proposes a highly personalized, organic approach that draws on today’s unprecedented technological and professional resources to engage all students, develop their love of learning, and enable them to face the real challenges of the twenty-first century. Filled with anecdotes, observations and recommendations from professionals on the front line of transformative education, case histories, and groundbreaking research—and written with Robinson’s trademark wit and engaging style--Creative Schools will inspire teachers, parents, and policy makers alike to rethink the real nature and purpose of education.*

In the United States: the state of California has a population of 39.144.818 (Census Gov. 2015), and over 24% of the school-age population is classified as an ELL (National Center of Immigrant Integration Policy, 2015).
In Canada: the province of Ontario has a population of 13,982,984 (Ontario Fin. Gov. 2015), over 25% of students are identified as English language learners (Statistics Canada), and the numbers will continue to increase in years to come.
Two neighboring countries that address English language learning differently. Yet, the majority of US-born ELLs and Canada-born ELLs are falling behind academically with respect to both their English-language peers and immigrant students.
Join Flavia Baker (@FlaviaBakerCHS) this Sunday at 8 on #EdChatRI to discuss the many ways we could improve supports for immigrants and ELLs in our education system.
