Excerpt: Jason Glass, Iowa Department of Education
Iowa Department of Education Director Jason Glass participates on the panel "State Education Reform and the Role of Teacher Effectiveness" at the 2013 TAP conference, moderated by Lowell Milken. TAP's principles "allow educators to grow professionally, learn from each other, and create systems for educators to work together on instruction," he says. "If we don't focus on educator quality, we will not be a high-performing system as a country and as a state."
