Educators Discuss Public Schools Plan
JEFFERSON CITY - The Missouri Association of School Administrators and the Missouri School Board Association are meeting in Jefferson City Monday to examine all components of the current education system and suggest changes needed to meet the needs of its students. The group wants to develop a plan that will ensure that the current public education system will prepare students for the twenty-first century.
Scores from the Missouri Assesment Program, or MAP, are increasing. However, the number of state schools not meeting the federal Adequate Yearly Progress goals is also on the rise.
Commissioner of Education Chris Nicastro and Tim Waters of Mid-Continent Research for Education and Learning will speak at the event. The meeting will hold small group discussions on bettering Missouri's public schooling.
