Teacher Evaluation: An International Perspective | Asia Society

Teacher Evaluation: An International Perspective | Asia Society:

 "The third in a series of unique gatherings of ministers of education and teacher union leaders, the 2013 International Summit on the Teaching Profession brought together delegations from the top 25 countries on OECD's PISA assessment of student achievement as well as from several rapidly improving countries. The first two summits, held in the United States, developed a consensus that achieving a high-quality teaching profession is critical to education systems as they face the increasingly ambitious demands of the 21st century and that the highest performing countries are successful because they take a comprehensive approach to recruiting, preparing, supporting, and retaining talented teachers and school leaders. The Summits spurred action on these issues in many of the participating countries over the past two years. This year, the Summit, which was hosted by the Dutch Ministry of Education, OECD, and Education International (the global federation of teachers' unions), took on the thorny issue of teacher evaluation."
