- Patt Morrison Radio Show: Making Teachers More Valued
On March 17, Deborah Ball guested on Patt Morrison, a radio show that airs for two hours every day on NPR affiliate Southern California Public Radio. The March 17 episode focused on the recently released Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) report, which compares education systems in more than 50 countries and recommends that the U.S. education system shift its focus - and funding - toward recruiting, training and retaining teachers. As a featured guest, Ball discussed teacher status, class size, and education funding, emphasizing that effective teacher preparation is the most powerful lever the U.S. has for improving K-12 education. She also responded to listeners' call-in questions.
