My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for PDK International, Inc., Arlington, VA, USA
As a board member of PDK, I have watched the organization, through its publications, provide practitioners and the broader public with important information. Translating research in ways that makes it easier to understand is critically important. In addition, PDK , with its annual poll supplies new knowledge critical to policymakers. Last year, PDK officials presented powerful and insightful findings from their annual poll findings at the Southern Education Foundation's 150 year Anniversary meeting in Atlanta. And this year's report entitled, Teaching: Respect but dwindling appeal, offered important data on the status of teaching while teachers from communities across the nation argued for more support for teachers and students. I look forward to PDK continuing its leadership role in both supporting practitioners and especially teachers, and providing data that contributes to evidence-based public discourse on the state of public education in the United States.
