School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced that Chet D. Linton, the company’s CEO and president, will keynote at the 2014 School Improvement Innovation Summit about the economic impact of an effective teacher and the essential role of teachers in economic growth and stability.
“Over the course of their career, a single educator influences hundreds of students and helps them master the skills they need to succeed in college or a career,” Mr. Linton said. “Truly effective educators help students master the 21st century skills they need to becoming meaningful contributors to the economy and society. As the creators of the workforce, educators are one of the largest contributing factors to economic and societal growth and stability.”
Mr. Linton’s presentation will show the societal cost of high school dropouts or graduates without the skills to fill jobs or succeed in college, and the impact of an effective teacher on students’ mastery of skills, generating a collective economic impact of millions of dollars.
The 2014 School Improvement Innovation Summit will be held September 29-October 1 at the Little America Hotel in Salt Lake City.
