FORT LAUDERDALE, Fl (PRWEB) July 04, 2014
At this week’s 14th Annual National Charter Schools Conference run by the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools, Charter Schools USA’s Director of Talent Acquisition Bryan Rueger participated on a panel of experts discussing best practices in the charter school field.
“As an education company, we are constantly finding new ways to learn and improve our own practices and methods and this conference is a great opportunity to do that,” said Rueger. “Finding high-quality teachers, principals and professional educators is a big part of our mission at CSUSA.”
The conversation highlighted methods that top talent seekers and talent producers use in the charter industry to attract high-quality teachers, principals and administrators
The panel had over 250 individuals in attendance and included other experts such as Kara Maguire from Uncommon Schools, Jennifer Smith from National Heritage Academies, Dottie Smith from The New Teacher Project, and Karen Callendar from Louisiana State University.
The conversation was titled, “What Would You Do if You Weren’t Afraid…to Recruit?” The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools website described the panel by explaining, “Many charter schools are strained to compete for the best and brightest teaching talent due to increasing competition from neighboring schools, limited charter industry branding and increasing certified teacher shortages." The panel was designed to address these challenges.
The annual conference in Las Vegas provides charter school operators from around the country an opportunity to come together and share innovative techniques for improving our nation’s schools. Keynote speakers at this year’s conference include Sal Khan, founder and executive director of the Khan Academy, and Eric Cantor, U.S. House of Representatives Majority Leader. The conference, with more than 4,000 attendees, is the largest annual gathering of the charter school movement.
