Midvale, Utah (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
School Improvement Network CEO and President Chet Linton will speak on Zions Bank “Speaking on Business” on Thursday, October 4 as a spokesperson for private-sector partnerships to solve problems in education.
“It’s a great privilege to have the opportunity to tell our unique story in the business and education space, and how our position enables us to help solve problems that are too great for the public sector to tackle alone,” Linton said.
“Speaking on Business” is a radio program that highlights diverse businesses throughout Utah and Idaho. It has featured more than 2,500 businesses since its start in 1997, including everything from beekeeping to international ski suppliers.
In Thursday’s segment, Linton will illustrate one of the most surprising paradoxes in modern education: Many of the world’s top education systems, like Finland, use U.S. education research to create more effective educators and better-prepared students than the U.S. can.
The key, Linton explains, is giving teachers the resources they need to be effective. That’s why School Improvement Network creates a suite of tools and joins it with a step-by-step process to improve teacher practice and dramatically increase student achievement.
“Our cause is helping 100 percent of students become college and career ready,” said Linton. “The only way that is possible is through giving educators the tools and resources they need to become truly effective and impact each and every student. That’s what we do, and our position as a private-sector partner puts us in the unique position to teachers and students the resources and support they need.”
The segment is hosted by Chris Redgrave, a former general manager of KSL NewsRadio and a past chair of the Salt Lake Chamber Board of Governors.
