NY Times Invites WHRHS' Stromsland to Join Panel

Frances Stromsland attends newspaper's 'Schools for Tomrorow' conference.

Watchung Hills Regional Superintendent Francis Stromsland participated in the Sept. 13 "Schools for Tomorrow: Building a Better Teacher" conference, sponsored by the New York Times.

The conference was billed as an "invitation-only conference that will bring together the world’s preeminent thought leaders in technology, business, politics and philanthropy along with New York Times Op-Ed columnists." Participants included Times' columnists David Brooks and Nicholas Kristof, as well as education and political reporters, and other experts in the field.

"I was very pleased to attend the conference as an invited guest," Dr. Stromsland said at the Sept. 19 Board of Education meeting. "This topic is a very timely topic...It was lead by many very interesting people—they invited speakers from all over the country."

She added the conference discussed current issues regarding teacher performance and teacher evaluations. 

"It was a quite interesting and popular conversation, with a focus on the many pros and cons, and plusses and minuses, of the various ideas and themes that surround teacher performance and student achievement," Dr. Stromlsand said.

The conference was the second sposnored by the Times, following a conference on technology in classrooms held last year.
