Teacher Leadership: The Pathway to Common Core Success

April 28, 2015, 10:00am ET - 11:30am ET

The Common Core State Standards were formed in a state-led effort to set consistent, rigorous standards across states so that all students have the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in college and careers. While the Common Core started as a local, collaborative effort, the standards have become a hot topic of debate in political circles. Through the politicization of the Common Core, the voices of those tasked with the work of implementing the standards—teachers—have been muffled.

From Risk to Resilience: Fortifying U.S. Communities in the Face of Climate Change

April 30, 2015, 12:00pm ET - 1:00pm ET

Resilience is a concept that has appeared with growing urgency in the lexicon of governments, industry, and the public as climate change has brought sea-level rise, extreme weather events, drought, and flooding to increasingly populated communities. Nationally, these hazards have wrought damage to the tune of $227 billion over the past four years. As these cities and towns seek to maintain their social, economic, and ecological integrity, the science of resilience continues to evolve with the progression of data and innovation.

So how can municipalities manage the unavoidable and avoid the unmanageable? Join the Center for American Progress and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for a discussion about how new data sources, innovation, and risk management combine to make communities stronger and healthier in the long term.
