AFSA Urges Biden to Convene National Panel of Educators

It is time for a change in our schools.

The Nation's Report Card released last week shows that schools around the nation aren't scoring well on national standardized tests. School leaders know that students are falling behind in our post-pandemic world, but we also know standardized testing has hurt the education system deeply. 

Taking aggressive action, AFSA President Len Pugliese reached out to President Biden urging him to convene a national education panel, composed of educators, school leaders, parents and academics, to rethink public education and offer a road map to national and state policymakers, helping move student achievement to new heights.

It is up to us as school leaders to help drive the discussion on what the future of public education should look like to provide our students with a world-class education. 

Below is the letter to the president.
