Teaching Summit a day of learning and creating

Posted on July 18, 2018

Nearly 100 teachers, advocates and policymakers came together on June 2 in Oak Park for the Elevate Teaching Summit: Ensuring an Effective Education in Every Illinois Classroom. The Summit was aimed at informing Teach Illinois, a year of inquiry into the teaching profession launched by the Illinois State Board of Education. The event was presented by Advance Illinois and the Joyce Foundation.

We now have a full recap of the event, available here. In addition, Stephanie Banchero of the Joyce Foundation was inspired to write the following op-ed for the Chicago Tribune.
