CU Boulder’s School of Education is bringing education research to the public with an evening of short presentations by education researchers in the style of Ted Talks.

The topics will range from how teacher churn affects students and learning to a presentation on the recent teacher walkouts.

Kathy Schultz, the dean of the CU Boulder School of Education will present on What Happened to Our Trust in Teachers?

“We live in a moment saturated with distrust—of people, motivations, actions, ideas and institutions. It shapes our feelings about teachers, schools and educational decisions and policies. At this time in the United States, there is also great dissatisfaction with education reform across the political spectrum. Distrust—and the failure to recognize and address it—plays a significant role in the failure of school reform. The strategies our country has chosen to enact reform create distrust and in so doing undermine precisely the conditions that enable successful educational change.”

Ed Talks takes place in the Boedecker Theater at the Dairy Arts Center, 2590 Walnut Street, Boulder on Tuesday May 22 at 7pm. The event is free and open to the public.
