St. Helena ESP Represents Louisiana Colleagues at Labor Management Conference in Ohio
Education Leaders Gather to Collaborate on Shared Vision for Next Generation of Teaching
GREENSBURG, LA—High school secretary and President of the St. Helena Association of Educators Patricia Clark joined education leaders from across the nation in Ohio this week for the annual Labor Management Conference, where educators, union leaders, and school board members gathered to share ideas and best practices for elevating teaching and improving student performance.
“The meeting was inspiring,” said Clark. “I’m bringing back a great amount of information that I feel will help make Louisiana students more successful.”
The conference brought together more than 100 leaders from 41 states in order to spotlight great teaching. Nearly a dozen presenters showcased their work, illustrating collaborative working environments, career ladders, differentiated compensation, college and career ready standards, and community engagement to support classroom instruction. Conference attendees left encouraged to engage in similar efforts to support their teachers back home.
“It was a fast and exhausting two days, but well worth the trip,” said Clark. “Everyone shared information on how they were working together to improve education and benefit our children. 14 states had their state superintendents there; seeing how they worked together was amazing.”
The Louisiana Department of Education representatives, including State Superintendent of Education John White were invited, but chose not to support the collaboration effort. Participating groups included the National Education Association, American Federation of Teachers, National School Boards Association and the U.S. Department of Education.
