Oct. 12, 2018, NHASCD Conf. with Doug Reeves



Next Generation Accountability:  Discovering the Opportunities with ESSA

Dr. Doug Reeves

October 12, 2018

During its first two years of implementation, many educators find the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) as little more than "No Child Left Behind 2.0."  There remains an excessive emphasis on standardized tests and a distinct absence of innovation.  In this interactive session, participants discover how we can do better.  Schools, districts, and states can be the engines of innovation, replacing ineffective and oppressive accountability practices with those that genuinely inform teaching, learning, and leadership.

Dr. Reeves is the author of more than 30 books and more than 90 articles on leadership and educational effectiveness.  Twice named to the Harvard University Distinguished Authors Series, Doug was named the Brock International Laureate for his contributions to education. Dr. Reeves received both the Distinguished Service Award from the National Association of Secondary School Principals and the Parent's Choice Award for his writing for children and parents. His career of work in professional learning led to the Contribution to the Field Award from the National Staff Development Council (now Learning Forward). For his international work, Dr. Reeves was named the William Walker Scholar by the Australian Council of Educational Leaders.

His volunteer activities include FinishTheDissertation.org, providing free and non-commercial support for doctoral students, and The SNAFU Review, publishing the essays, poetry, stories, and artwork of disabled veterans.  Doug lives with his family in downtown Boston.  He Tweets @DouglasReeves, blogs atCreativeLeadership.net, and can be reached at 1.781.710.9633.
