Though I’m receiving plenty of reader questions (but could always use more!), I periodically instead decide to respond to a “Question That’s Been On My Mind.”

This is another one of those times (I’ll be returning to reader questions next week)....

My question relates to the major report and “new action agenda” announced by the National Education Association in December. The report, developed by a NEA-initiated group of teachers called the Commission on Effective Teachers and Teaching, made a number of recommendations.

My question is:

What were the most important aspects of the Commission report, and what might be its practical effects?

I’ve invited several guests will be responding to this question, including Commission member Renee Moore and NEA President Dennis Van Roekel.

I hope readers will share their responses, too.

Please share your thoughts in the comments, or, if you prefer, feel free to email them to me.

As a longtime member of the California Teacher’s Association, the NEA affiliate in our state, I’m particularly interested in learning more....

Anyone whose question is selected for this weekly column can choose one free book from a selection of twelve -- including my own -- published by Eye On Education.

You can send questions to me at lferlazzo@epe.org.When you send in your question, let me know if I can use your real name if it’s selected or if you’d prefer remaining anonymous and have a pseudonym in mind.
