National Labor Management Partnership: Collaborating for Student Success

Date of broadcast: Tue, 11/27/18

Research shows that partnerships between district leaders, unions, associations and school boards can result in student achievement gains, improved school climate, increases in teacher retention, and a more positive public perception of educators. But historically, developing these partnerships has proved challenging.

Attend this web seminar to learn about a national effort to foster meaningful collaboration between educator organizations, The National Labor Management Partnership. This partnership brings together the American Association of School Administrators (AASA), American Federation of Teachers (AFT), National School Boards Association (NSBA), and the National Education Association (NEA), in an unprecedented level of cooperation to benefit public education.

Topics will include:

    • How to build systems of improvement that engage unions and education associations
    • Ways to advance student-centered goals with support from education stakeholders
    • Developing mechanisms to share and scale district-level best practices
    • The motivation behind the national partnership, and its goals for the future
