Lowell Milken: Think About This, Part 1: Progress Report on the State of American Education

Los Angeles, CA Think About This, presented by NIET Chairman and TAP Founder Lowell Milken, takes a hard look at some of the most daunting challenges American K-12 education has faced for more than four decades, and encourages participation in helping to improve the system. "As I travel around the country presenting Milken Educator Awards to outstanding K-12 educators and working with hundreds of teachers and principals in high-need public schools with the comprehensive school reform TAP™: The System for Teacher and Student Advancement, I see the promise of education being fulfilled by many exemplary educators," says Lowell Milken. "However, this is happening largely in spite of—and not due to—the system in which they work. Each of us has the ability to play a pivotal role in creating meaningful and sustained improvements in student performance and teacher effectiveness."
