Minding the Achievement Gap
Sex ed
Good teachers can increase a student’s chances of going to college, decrease the chances of students becoming teenage parents, and perhaps most remarkably— increase a student's earnings over a lifetime, according to a new study by Harvard University and Columbia University. Clearly, our education system is critical to the health of our nation. So, what can be done to make comprehensive education reform a priority for policy makers?

We want to hear from you: leave a comment on our Facebook page. Was there a teacher who made a difference in your life for the better? Parents, what are you seeing in the classroom? What needs to be done to make education a priority with our policy makers?

GUESTS:
  John Friedman, assistant professor of public policy at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, co-author of "The Long-Term Impacts of Teachers"
  Arun Ramanathan, executive director of the Education Trust-West
