The Second Advanced Seminar for K-12 Education Leaders
The second Advanced Seminar on Education Management was held at Teachers College Columbia University on November 13-17, 2006. It consisted of presentations and discussion at Teachers College, and a field study of schools around the New York City area. Like the first seminar held last year, the major theme of the second seminar was school reform to improve learning for all children. Participants consisted of 25 primary and secondary school principals, directors and vice directors of educator bureaus, and other educators from China. We invited TC professors and the directors from the professional associations in the U.S. to make lectures about education leadership, curriculum and teaching, teacher evaluation, school choices, etc.
The Chinese delegation was led by Mr. Yan Wang of the Center Education Development, Chinese Society of Education. At Teachers College, Professor Mun Tsang was the organizer and Mr. Dakai Li was the Project Manager.
