Who:     Dr. Sharon P. Robinson, president and CEO of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE), and reporters interested in teacher education/preparation issues.

What:     Robinson holds an informal sit-down/conference call with media reporters during AACTE’s 59th Annual Meeting and Exhibits to answer their questions on teacher preparation and highlight AACTE’s teacher education initiatives.

When:     Monday, February 26, 2007 from 11:00 a.m. to 11:40 a.m.

Where:     New York Hilton, 1335 Avenue of Americas, New York City, N.Y. 10010, Video Conference Room, 4th floor. Reporters who are located outside of the New York area may call in at 641.696.4444. The access code is 200700. Please call-in 5 minutes prior to the conference call at 10:55 a.m.

Why:     Lately we seem to be bombarded with the message – from the news media, the halls of Congress, even the latest best sellers – that our education system is in a state of tremendous flux. Teacher turnover, the global economy, teacher recruitment, hip-hop in the classroom, literacy skills, workforce skills, the state of Louisiana schools after the Katrina catastrophe and technology in the classroom – how do each of these impact us, education programs, and our communities? Find out how colleges of education are contributing to the solutions for these important issues.
