More About The Education Industry:
In the United States, nearly 3.5 million children had a teacher who was not fully qualified to teach them according to a national survey on teaching quality. It is estimated that around 1 in 5 school children have an underqualified teacher. This may not just be their academic skills but how to influence, negotiate and inspire children to excel.
Teacher training is a major issue in America as well as China. According to a study by the National Council on Teacher Quality, only 13 per cent of training programs are producing teachers who can grade papers accurately, prepare lesson plans and understand the subject matter.
Duncan is frequently hired as an education keynote speaker to deliver his inspiring keynote presentations to help teachers and educators influence more effectively, navigate change or work more effectively inside and outside of an educational setting.
The ASCD (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) is the Annual Conference & Exposition and is the premier gathering of educational leaders who are passionate about their work. Educators come to this three-day conference each year to learn, network, refine their skills, and get inspired by specialists such as Duncan Stevens.
The NCSS (National Council for the Social Studies) is an advocacy organization that strives to ensure that the study of social studies is included in, and enhances each student’s total education. They host a conference to provide skills and professional development training to elementary, secondary, and university educators of social studies.
The CEC Middle East Education Conference is one of the leading educational conferences in the region that brings together education stakeholders to discuss the most important issues facing the field today. The conference aims to strengthen educational partnerships between policymakers, administrators, teachers, parents, media professionals and educational institutions.
Training teachers in America’s schools and universities takes place within a complex interplay of societal, professional, and governmental forces. While educational institutions play a critical role in training teachers, K-12 schools often face the greatest pressure to ensure both that they train high-quality teachers and that they produce those teachers as quickly as possible with minimal costs. This is no easy task. The U.S. educational system has faced many of the challenges associated with training high-number, high-quality teachers. The result is that our nation continues to face an ongoing need for highly skilled teachers in a variety of fields, including computer science, mathematics, special education, health care, English as a second language (ESL), and vocational education.
