Global Ed Talks with Anthony Mackay: An Interview with Joanne Weiss

Joanne Weiss

In the tenth conversation of our Global Ed Talks series, Anthony Mackay sits down with Joanne Weiss, former chief of staff to U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and NCEE Board of Trustees member, to discuss how states are working to align their instructional systems. An independent education consultant, Weiss currently works with states involved in the Council of Chief State School Officers’ Instructional Materials and Professional Development (IMPD) Network to increase the use of standards-aligned, high-quality instructional materials by teachers in every classroom and ensure that professional learning is wrapped around these materials.
