December 8, 2014: A Conversation About Education, Pt. 2: Author Elizabeth Green and McKinleyville Middle School Principal Julie Giannini Previde Discuss the Common Core With Host Lynette Nutter

What is Common Core? Is it an opportunity to solve some of America’s controversial education problems, or is it another “quick fix” that will cost a lot of money with little change? 

Building A Better Teacher BookAuthor and journalist Elizabeth Green spent six years interviewing educators and researchers who have devoted their lives to finding the answer. The fascinating results are revealed in her new book, Building A Better Teacher, How Teaching Works (and How to Teach It to Everyone). Julie Giannini Previde was a teacher for 15 years before becoming the principal for McKinleyville Middle School.

This is part two of a two-part series on education. To listen to last week’s program on Teaching, click on the following link:
