NSBA President Mary Broderick and Executive Director Anne L. Bryant appeared on Blog Radio’s Education Talk Radio this week to discuss school boards and the role of school boards in education reform.
Bryant discussed NSBA’s recent Annual Conference in San Francisco and the professional development that NSBA and the state associations provide for local school board members, including the Key Work of School Boards and using data and technology to make decisions and improve student learning.
Host Larry Jacobs queried Bryant and Broderick about school districts’ budgets and finances and how school boards make decisions in the era of budget cuts and tight economies. The conversation also veers into the role of teachers unions and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan’s ideas for innovation in education.
